Denial In Paradise: courtship. release the album of the summer

Featured Image via courtship.

Debut albums are an important landmark in a band’s career. It’s a first impression, the first chance to make a real statement about what kind of band you want to be. Pop duo courtship. just released their debut album, Denial In Paradise, and what an impression they have made.

Denial In Paradise is 27 minutes of feel good bops. Micah’s silky falsetto paired with synth-soaked melodies makes this the perfect album for summer. So go ahead, open up the sunroof (*wink wink*) and blast it on your way to the beach or have your own private dance party in your living room. No matter where you are or what you are doing when you listen to this album, it is sure to bring a smile to your face.

Coasts This Life Vol.1 Album Review​

Featured Image: Coasts

It’s here, it’s finally here! Coasts second album This Life Vol. 1 is released today and I am absolutely loving it!

Coasts took to their social media channels at midnight last night/ this morning for a listening party. Sadly my phone battery died about 30 seconds in so all I got to hear was that the guys from Coasts went to bingo last night – as if I needed any more reason to love them.

When I first heard the singles from the new album including ‘Come On Over’ and ‘Paradise’ I thought that they had a kind of tropical sounding vibe to them yet that was bringing the party to my door.

Yet compare this to the thought-provoking and often chilling  ‘Let Me Love You’  ‘Chase The Night’ and ‘Born To Die’ you have a well-rounded album that has a more grown up feel to it, referencing topics that are often ignored to great effect.

I loved the constant surprises and curve balls that This Life threw out, I mean like can we talk about the choir in ‘Born To Die’? Totally majestic and so unexpected.

This Life Vol.1 is a revealing insight into issues that many of us face including dealing with mental health demons and highlights that (this) life is not all sunshine and daisies.

So what’s your favourite song from the new album?  I literally can’t decide, I love them all but at a push, I’d have to say from the  singles: ‘Take Me Back Home’ ‘Heart Starts Beating’ (affectionately  known as High Stakes Blackjack) and from the newer songs ‘Born To Die’ and ‘Make It Out Alive’.

I took to Twitter to see what other people’s faves were:

This Life Vol. 1 charts at No.14 in the iTunes Alternative Album Chart and people of the UK can look forward to Coasts epic 38 date tour in September/October.

I obviously can’t tell you which dates I’m going to (because the guys might find out and that would ruin the surprise of randomly turning up)

If this wasn’t enough good news for one Wednesday the guys from Coasts also announced a marathon 38 date UK album tour!

Coasts will be playing at many cities where they haven’t been before as well as some of their favourite haunts. So whilst we at Adore worry about how Chris Caines’ voice will hold up, the question isn’t so much will you be going but rather how many of the dates will you be going to?

Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect: Sundara Karma Album Review

Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect; Sundara Karma’s debut album has been years in the making but was it worth the wait? In a word; yes.

From the highs of ‘Loveblood’ and ‘She Said’ to the moving and gripping “Happy Families’ the album is an exploration of what it means to be young but dig a little deeper and the four piece from Reading may surprise you with the eloquence of their lyrics, religious connotations and references to Plato in ‘Flame.’

Sundara Karma are bringing a renaissance to indie rock and are a ‘band in waiting’ no more as this explosive debut with hard-hitting hooks and intensely provocative lyrics is making a firm impression on the music scene.
