Candy Coffins offer a wellspring of superbly crafted melodic post-punk, proving to be relentless in their pursuit of material that embodies the emotive nature of human experience. While one foot is firmly planted in the foundation of brooding, emotional restlessness, the other steps into an arena of hope and elation. With tasteful nods to Joy Division, The Cure, The Psychedelic Furs, The Afghan Whigs and The Cult, as well as contemporaries like The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Spiritualized, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Interpol, Candy Coffins’ sound is dark and emotionally restless, but with elements of hope and elation. Defiantly unique, their sound is a welcome respite from musical mediocrity.
Candy Coffins channel the sonic confectionaries of life. Plan accordingly.
Post-punk new romantics Candy Coffins have announced they will release a new album in October. Entitled “Once Do It With Feeling” this 10-track offering comes two years after the band's latest “Somehow Misplaced” EP.
Ahead of this, the band presents “Every Day A Fresh Atrocity”, the first taster of this stunning album. Candy Coffins provides current fans a needed fix while also presenting much to pique the interest of new listeners.
“[The song] explores the dark corners where our work often resides, both sonically and lyrically. It conveys the feeling of the haunting suffocation of a broken relationship, compounded by a reality that seems to become more dystopian each day," says frontman-songwriter Jame Lathren.
”A compelling example of the band at their considerable best, walking a fine-tuned line between darkness and the silver-lining of new romanticism. Haunting with loads of energy, this song boasts some impressive guitar work and, of course, excellence in frontman Jame Lathren's nervous, edgy vocal delivery” - Amplify Music Magazine
