Mind The Moon

    Milky Chance return with the help of Tash Sultana, and the results are simply put; special. Pop on their collaborative efforts, Daydreaming, which you’ll immediately see manages to border feeling both worldly and otherworldly

    It’s rare that on a day you hear a new Milky Chance song that you’ll hear anything else as fresh sounding. This track is one of their most introspective offerings yet. The band explain "It’s not just a daydream, it’s more like a vision of how things could be, and where you could go. It’s about those mechanisms that starts working when you don’t know how to deal with reality.“

    Their collaboration with Tash Sultana evolved after they met at an Australian festival. They got together shortly after in the studio to create Daydreaming. Tash’s debut record, Flow State, has seen the artist win host of tastemaker credibility from media from across the globe from Rolling Stone, Triple J to the Guardian.

    Milky Chance comprises of German duo Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch. There’s few accomplishments that the band haven’t already achieved with their first two albums, Sadnecessary and Blossom. Things really started for the band with their first hit, Stolen Dance, which went on to become a global phenomenon garnering support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 who playlisted the song for 6 weeks with the track peaking at no.1 on Shazam. On their second record, hits like Cocoon and Doing Good saw them play 241 shows in 41 countries.


    'Distance Inbetween' is The Coral’s first album of original material since 2010’s Butterfly House, a gap punctuated by last year’s surprise release of their lost album, 'The Curse of Love'. Since their debut EP release in 2001 the band have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10 including 2003’s chart-topping 'Magic and Medicine'. Their eight Top 40 singles include Dreaming Of You, In The Morning, Pass It On, and Don’t Think You’re The First.

    Recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studio with co-producer Richard Turvey, 'Distance Inbetween' was recorded live and mostly in just one take. The seams of each of the album’s 12-tracks are purposely rough-hewn and pave the way for a new visceral sound from a totally reenergised band.

    "Before we started making the album we had discussed that we wanted it to be more minimal and rhythmical,” explains James Skelly (vocals, guitars). “We thought ‘if you've got a rhythm section that’s been playing together for almost twenty years, why not make that the centre of the songs?’"

    On the album James, Ian Skelly (drums/percussion/vocals), Nick Power (keyboard/vocals), and Paul Duffy (bass/keyboards/vocals) are joined by Coral newbie, guitarist Paul Molloy, formerly of The Zutons.

    “Paul was playing with Ian in their band, Serpent Power, and we'd all been mates with him for years,” says James. “We already had a couple of tunes recorded and Ian suggested Paul add some guitar. His parts really enhanced the tracks; he understood where he needed to leave space. From that point we didn't look back. We had a full line-up and were confident we could make an album that would stand next to the others."

    On 'Distance Inbetween' listeners are invited into The Coral’s world of Richard Yates’ books, Alan Moore comics, 1980's toys, the sound of krautrock compilations and Muddy Waters’ Electric Mud, and Gregory Crewdson’s darkly beautiful photography.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Andy says: Based on The Wirral, which geographers will tell you is directly between Liverpool and Wales, it's heartening that this classic Northern band sound precisely like a blend between Gorkys and Super Furries on the one hand, and Shack and the Bunnymen on the other. Throw in The Doors with a sprinkling of 60's psych and you have a superb blend: cosmosis if you will! This is their come back album. And it's excellent!
