Coquin Migale Go 'soft' On Tour!
24th January 2017

** COQUIN MIGALE CONTINUE TO GO ALL ‘SOFT’! **
** NEWCASTLE ROCKSTERS CARRY ON TOURING! **

Geordie wonderboys COQUIN MIGALE (pronounced “Co-Kwin Mig-ale”) are certainly not shirking from their New Year rocking duties. Having already pounded down to London Town for a Pandamonium gig in Dalston Victoria and to record sessions for Radio X’s John Kennedy and Radio One’s Huw Stephens in January, they are now heading back out on tour throughout February 2017.

The melody-crunching quartet, who consist of Alex Soper (guitar / vocals), Stevie Kane (bass), new-ish boy Mark Crab Robinson (guitar) and Josh Holmes (drums), start in Bath on Friday the 3rd and finish in Aberdeen on Saturday 25th, as per the dates listed below.

Their most recent single release is the excellently effervescent ‘Soft’, which is getting another hefty fierce panda push for the tour. It’s a kaleidoscopic track which takes their patented giant indiegrungerock sound and adds another multitude of layers of epic melodic power, and then some.

The ‘Soft’ song was premiered here: https://www.thelineofbestfit.com/artists/coquin-migale

The ‘Soft’ video was premiered here: http://louderthanwar.com/coquin-migale-reveal-video-soft-premiere/

The sumptuously heavyweight ‘Soft’ single follows the ‘Munro’ album which was released last year to tie in with Coquin Migale’s momentous headline appearances on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals. Previous panda singles ‘Pt. 2’ and ‘Grindie’ set the musical template for ‘Munro’ with their fragrant vocals and emboldened riffs and lovely subtle rock flourishes, and now ‘Soft’ takes that template outside for a darned giant cosmic cuddle.

Little wonder that the likes of ‘Grindie’ and previous releases ‘Gold’, ‘Socrata’ and ‘Luv’ should have all burrowed their sweet, sweaty ways into the hearts of the nation’s finest disc jockeying tastemakers such as Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson, John Kennedy and Phil Taggart as well as meriting the local hero love of BBC Introducing Newcastle. And even smaller wonder that the ‘Munro’ record should have – quite literally - sparked these literary flurries here, here and there:

“The album fizzes with ideas and energy…the songs reveal a keen sense of epic space and emotional tenderness.” – Daily Mirror

“If you like your rock loud, distorted and fresh, I would urge you to go and get this belter of an album.” – The Zine

“For fans of a classic alternative rock sound this is for you: these guitar riffs and melodies with great rhythm and pace are going to propel this band onto a greater audience.” - littleindieblogs
