Album Notes
The first album from Coronation Kings is a powerful testament to old school songwriting. It is based on words and music by Richard Barrett and was co-written by coronation kings. The songs reflect on subject matters as sublime as Ghosts, Lost Paintings, Homelessness, Love and Loss,Drowning, Suicide and Mental Health. An eclectic mix of melodies, rock sounds and genres, Cathel & Me has meaning and depth. Played against a backdrop of dynamic rock guitars and drums and interwoven with piano and cello, the album is easy to understand and fall in to.

Track Info:

Cathel & Me... A tragic story of a lost painting and a family drowned at sea twisted with the writers own fears after near drowning as a child. Based on a true story, The painting is now returned to the original artist (Derek Robertson) and lives on in Scotland, immortalised forever. A slow burner of a song laced with rich old-school harmonies and piano vibes.

Fly... The difficult and dysfunctional relationship between parents and teenagers is tackled with a strong and heavy-hitting song. Love meets hate with a zeppelin backline feel and rousing guitars.

Madeline...Love and Loss, a break up song with a twist. strong guitars and melodies are dawn together in an almost pop-like fusion of old school. tones of americana, electric light orchestra and mott the hoople, make this song a catchy tune.

The Road...Two young people travel through the early dusk, across the flatlands toward the motorway. Running away from their lives, their pasts and their futures. "Dont look behind future horizons" A common story of escape and adventure in this upbeat acoustic-based song. Distantly reminiscent of Springsteen maybe until the listener is hit with a curve-ball middle eight to throw you off guard and bring you back to the coronation king. Backing vocals and fade outs make old sound new again.

Killing Me... The slow song, upfront acoustic and filled with space and time, this track feels instantly recognisable and easy until the chorus takes you on a serious ride up the hill to a pleading finale. Very powerful and even bigger live. The songwriting holds back saving the knock-out punch until the end. A Rock classic style about the powerful and sad relationship between a father and a son and how time is lost so quickly which can never be replaced or re-lived.

Waterfall... A song exploring spirituality and afterlife. Contemplating the funeral of an old seafarer friend and the loss of life for a drowning fisherman, these lyrics reflect on nature, science and afterlife, questioning religion and humankind on a journey down the river of life and eventually over the waterfall. A slow building and powerful anthem that has a watery grave. The song is honest and keen and offers something to the listener. An uplifting experience.

Audio... Night time in the city, Neon glazes and the underworld meet, in this upbeat epic rock tune. A fusion of music styles make this song dynamic. Stirring keyboards and overdriven guitars are underpinned by a solid drum rhythm. Crescendos are everywhere and it oozes with excitement, fast cars in the nighttime of the city, a touch of the dark looming over you.

Concrete Paradise Sands...A waltz, driven by an acoustic guitar and laced with beautiful cello's and the darkness of a male voice choir. Concrete Paradise is based on the poem "Bed of Cement" by Ruby. It tells the story of a homeless man who notices a lady on a bus who passes his sleeping spot each morning. Their eyes meet and each day they look at each other wondering about the others life and person. One day the lady looks out from the window of the bus and the man is no longer there, she is left empty and contemplating over what might have happened to him. The song is unique, it doesn't have a chorus and yet it feels instantly recognisable, catchy and moving. It builds into a crescendo of restrained power as the cellos take you on a musical journey across the landscape of a city dressed in dark humour as a holiday camp. The grand finale is quite moving and worth waiting for.

Domino...FInally, the Coronation Kings have included one pop song on the album. Upbeat and almost worth a dance, Domino starts off with acoustic strumming and then evolves into a guitar-based pop tune. The song addresses family values and the effects that mental health can have across the family group. "All fall down in a line one by one" like Domino's. A modern feeling song with jangly guitars and catchy riffs throughout. A Classic old school middle eight leads you into a santana-style guitar break.

Making Movies...The last track on the album, making movies leads you with a jazzy jangly guitar verse laced with jazz piano thats driven with cowbell!! soft honest vocals open into a spacious link which is soon overtaken by a powerful indie-rock chorus with overdriven guitars and bonham style drums and hammond organ. An exciting and powerful song which contemplates mental health issues and the importance of living the now.
