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.
A feel-good summer anthem about the excitement of a new relationship, ‘Real Feel’ seems destined to delight The Coronas’ fans and will no doubt prove to be an awesome live moment at The Coronas big outdoor shows this Summer at Sea Sessions, Galway Arts Festival and their huge headline show in Kilmainham (July 1st) to name but a few!
‘Real Feel’ can be downloaded from iTunes and ‘Trust The Wire’ can be pre-ordered from here.

“Empty Vessels”. Produced by Joe Cross (Hurts, Chloe Howl, The Courteeners), “Empty Vessels” was recorded in Dublin’s Cauldron Studios (Hozier, The Coronas, Ryan Sheridan).
“Empty Vessels” is a thrilling three minutes of bouncing beats, dreamy guitars, and tropical synths. This video comes just two weeks after the band’s last release, “Be American”, and is the latest in a run of previously unreleased material that Neon Wolf will be sharing over the coming weeks. “Over the last few years we have built up a catalogue of great recordings that until this point have never been heard by the public”, says Neon Wolf frontman Rob Grace, “so we decided that we’d put them out there, so everybody can hear and enjoy the songs”.
Neon Wolf’s debut EP, Love Lost In Design topped iTunes charts in Ireland and was also released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, receiving both national and regional airplay. In 2012, the band were also awarded the RTÉ RAAP Breakthrough Bursary, having been chosen out of a list of thousands of entrants.
Since then Neon Wolf have built a staunch fan-base in both Ireland and around the world. They have entertained crowds at festivals throughout the country, such as Electric Picnic, Longitude, Sea Sessions, Other Voices, and Indiependence. They have also been invited to play support to many internationally famous bands, such as Stereophonics (Kilmainham Hospital), Feeder (The Academy), The 1975 (The Academy), Alabama Shakes (The Academy), and Hudson Taylor (Olympia Theatre).
