The Coronas – Real Feel

As the anticipation continues to grow for their new album ‘Trust the Wire’ (out June 2nd), The Coronas’ newest single, ‘Real Feel’, fuses their catchy radio-friendly tendencies of old, along with their new-found atmospheric sound. This new direction can be heard in their most recent release “We Couldn’t Fake It” which enjoyed significant airplay all over Ireland and further afield.
