Kit’s Awesome Vid of the Day – The Coronas – Mark My Words
I love the stage shots where the band looks like vector graphics, the lighting, the colors and how well the moving images are layered. The video was directed by Simon Eustace and won Best Video at the Bray Music Video Festival.
The Coronas released their new album, Closer To You, this past November. It is awesome and you all should go buy it.
What? Okay, okay. That is brief, even for me. Let’s try this again.
The Coronas, Danny O’Reilly on vocals and guitar, Graham Knox on bass, Conor Egan on drums, and Dave McPhillips on lead guitar, are an indie rock band out of Dublin with a knack for for taking basic themes like relationships and religion and adding in subtle layers of meaning. They have always written good songs but the tracks on Closer To You are some of their best so far.
My favorites are the beautiful and bittersweet Write to Me, the bouncy Addicted to Progress and What You Think You Know with its heavy rock drums and the closest the guys get to ‘screamin’ guitars’.
I also like Mark My Words, the next single set to release on February 3rd. It has a just a little of an ’80’s sound.
