There must be something in the water up north. From what I’ve been led to believe, ‘Up North’ is anywhere north of St Albans to Londoners. There has been a plethora of really good new bands coming out of Manchester and going on ‘Say Something’, Corella have put themselves at the top of the pile.
‘Say Something’ is the follow up to ‘Barcelona Girl’ from earlier this summer. I defy you not to dance. However, it will be inevitable. Funky guitar and drums and memorable refrains are the vital ingredients in this recipe. I’d put a tenner on that these guys have listened to Little Comets on more than one occasion.
Great song structure, musicality and vocal delivery all come together perfectly at exactly the right time for Corella. This is a huge delightful slice of indie pop. Definitely a band to watch out for in 2018.
The lads are playing the O2 Ritz Manchester on 14/12/17 and will be announcing a tour for Spring 2018 shortly.
