The band The Coral formed in
1996 in Hoylake, Merseyside, England by a half-dozen schoolmates. Raised on
Brit-pop, Merseybeat and 1960s psychedelic folk, lead singer James Skelly,
bassist Pail Duffy, drummer Ian Skelly, guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones, and
guitarist Lee Southall formed into a jamboree of jangling indie pop that
quickly had NME magazine billing them as the next big thing. Full of hazy
harmonies and tripped out jams, their eponymous debut album was nominated for
the Mercury Music Prize in 2002, reached Number 5 in the UK charts and produced
the hit single “Dreaming of You”. Counting Noel Gallagher as one of
their biggest fans, the band's success grew with second album Magic and
(2003), which shot straight to the top of the charts with lead
single “Pass It On” becoming a lilting summer anthem. With Portishead's
Geoff Barrow and Adrian Utley as producers, Invisible Invasion (2005)
took a slightly darker turn before Roots and Echoes (2007) strummed and
clattered into a lo-fi attempt at a classic West Coast pop sound and became
their fifth consecutive top 10 album. Butterfly House, saw its release
in 2010 followed soon after by Butterfly House Acoustic featuring the
album tracks unplugged. The original album was named UK Album of the Year at
the Music Producers Guild Awards in 2010. After a few years away, they returned
with 2016’s Distance Inbetween, and 2018’s Move Through the Dawn.
