Upon settling in London, author Coralcrown Luis Gotor took a hiatus from music, crestfallen that his old band had finished. Eventually, the capital 's vibrant and diverse musical nightlife captivated him, and he' s decided to return to music as a solo artist on his own terms and complete creative control.
En s'installant à Londres, l'auteur Coralcrown Luis Gotor fait une pause dans la musique suite à la dissolution de son groupe. Finalement, la vie nocturne musicale Londonienne l'inspire et il décide de reprendre le contrôle sur sa carrière et se lance en solo.
Coralcrown is the result of that. It’s a vital and visionary project, establishing Luis as an ambitious musician with a gifted ear for the kind of restlessly infectious melodies that made popular music from the seventies and eighties so uplifting. His technical approach is cutting edge, and the sound he’s achieved is nothing short of the slick professional indie pop production you’re likely to hear on say, a Foals or Bombay Bicycle Club record - audacious and primed for the festival circuit. Luis’s first EP Birth is the culmination of his effortlessly lush rebound back into writing music, and with a live band backing him, the stage is literally and figuratively set to disseminate his canny pop hooks to anyone with a relish for melody.
Close mic’d guitars and a lush indie soundscape form the backdrop for an anthemic meditation on carnal desire and temptation. The song’s voyeuristic perspective is soundtracked by 80’s sunshine pop synths and funk guitar. ‘She Is A Saint’ showcases Coralcrown’s effortless knack for song architecture. It’s danceable, groove-laden and subtle, climaxing with a bluesy guitar solo that highlights his perfectionist’s ear for feel-good sounds.
