LISTEN: Coral – ‘i just want you cause you’re gone’

A buoyant slice of indie-pop that gently acknowledges the mixed feelings that blur your thought processes post-relationship, Swedish newcomer Coral has shared her new single ‘i just want you cause you’re gone’. Taken from her upcoming debut album which she recently recorded with Joakim Lindberg at Studio Sickan, the track showcases Coral’s talent for writing catchy yet confessional music.

At the age of 16, Coral (aka Miranda Coral Engholm) moved from Österlen to Malmö and began studying music. After she graduated from high school, she experienced a flood of creativity and began writing songs and with the support of her friends, she began performing live on the Swedish underground scene, with one of her first lives shows playing as support to American songwriter Lucy Dacus.

Now, Coral is preparing to release her debut record, and ‘i just want you cause you’re gone’ is the first taste of what to expect from the album. Clinging to fragile hopes like “You like brown eyes I like blue / You’re quite weird but I’m weird too,” Coral explores her mixed emotions through her endearing lyrics, but ultimately she’s aware her feelings are going to waste. Listen to ‘i just want you cause you’re gone’ below and follow Coral on Instagram & Facebook for more updates.

Guest Playlist: Emily Magpie

As Autumn draws in, what better way to remember the summer than by listening to some of the sweetest tunes from this year’s festivals…?! Having just shared the celestial grace of latest single ‘Last Train’, and set to release her new EP next month, Bristol-based artist Emily Magpie has chosen some of her personal favourites for us…

Watch Emily Magpie’s new video for ‘Last Train here:

It’s been such a lush summer of festivals for me, and I’ve gotten to see some amazing female artists along the way. Really proud to see some amazing women doing their thing and blazing a path for there to be more of a balance at festivals – we need more of this please! Here’s some of my faves that I’ve seen/hope to see next year…

China Bowls 
My fellow Bristolian China Bowls is such a superb musician and songwriter… I’ve had the joy of gigging with this lady before and she was all over the festival season. Jazz, neo soul and hip-hop influences, soulful vocals and guitar… Always great solo, or with band in tow, check her out!

Lucy Dacus
I’ve loved ‘…Familiar Place’ by Lucy Dacus since I stumbled across it on Spotify this year, and then managed to stumble across her live set at Green Man Festival this summer after I’d finished mine. I was so happy to see this lovely indie singer-songwriter live; chill vibes, plus she’s hilarious!

Hollie Cook
I caught Hollie’s tropical pop at Boomtown Festival this year, when tropical pop was so so necessary. It was a pretty soggy affair and Hollie brought the sunshine. She’s on tour in Autumn, and I’m definitely going to try and watch her again!

Goat Girl
Saw the end of their live set at Green Man Festival and loved it. Dark, hazy, some shoegaze feels and indie sounds – very cool band.

IDER
IDER are right up my street; with really cool electronic production, their vocals are what really take it to the next level. I’m excited to see what they do next.

Kate Stapley
I saw Kate Stapley live at Bristol Harbourside Festival just after my set. It’s such a great festival for seeing upcoming Bristol artists, and I fecking LOVE Kate’s music. I guess genre-wise it’s indie, but what she does is just magical. The songwriting is fantastic. You need ‘These Planets’ on repeat!

Holly Walker & Malibou State
I’m really into this set up; it’s such great music to chill to, but also kind of dance-able also. It’s on my list to listen to lots more and get into.

This is the Kit
I didn’t manage to catch This Is The Kit at a festival this year, but they were doing the rounds. Such a lovely, lovely band! I was lucky enough to play support to them earlier this year, and they craft the most magical folk songs. A really special band and excellent people, check them out!Frankie Cosmos
Frankie Cosmos is just ace. Somewhere between indie and folk, I love the lo-fi feel of her music, it just makes me feel all happy and soft inside.

Honeyfeet
Honeyfeet are a band you just have to see live. I got taken along to a gig of theirs a couple of years ago, and wow. Perfect festival band – so much soul, so much sass, so much energy, so much dancing. Go listen and get sweaty and happy!

Huge thanks to Emily for putting together this playlist for us! Have a listen, and feel all those luscious summer vibes here:
