Bands to Watch #200: The Coronas

By on Tuesday, 23rd November 2010 at 12:00 pm

I was nosing around an Irish indie music blog and happened upon an interesting new find. To me anyway. The Coronas are probably the biggest indie band in Ireland that you haven’t heard of yet. I’d never heard of them, but after I listened to their heartbreakingly beautiful track ‘Someone Else’s Hands’, I wish I had heard about them much sooner. Just last week they played their first big gig on this side of the pond – in the wine country of Napa Valley – someone over here in America must already be stumping for them. So I’m convinced it’s only time before they break outside of Eire.

The Terenure, Dublin band already have two studio albums already under their belt – 2007’s ‘Heroes or Ghosts’ and 2009’s ‘Tony Was an Ex-Con’. When the second album was released in late September 2009, it hit #1 on the iTunes Irish albums chart upon its release. In 2010 they beat out countrymen heavyweights U2 and Snow Patrol for the Meteor (Irish version of the BRIT Award) in the category of Best Album. With piano-based songs like ‘Someone Else’s Hands’, I’m thinking Keane and Coldplay. Could superstardom just be around the corner? I think it’s a distinct possibility.
