The Coronas - Just Like That

03:40

Happy New Year - we're off to a great start in 2015 with this pick of the very best new tunes to clear away those January cobwebs.

SUNSHINE IN JANUARY RECORD OF THE WEEK: The Coronas - Just Like That


The Coronas are about as big as it gets in their native Ireland – in the past eight years the Dublin quartet have become one of Ireland's best kept secrets (apart from some support from us at Radio X!). Over the course of three platinum selling albums they have sold out Dublin's 13,000 capacity O2 Arena, and a record breaking six night residency at the city's legendary Olympia Theatre. Just Like That is the first single to be taken from their forthcoming 4th album, the prophetically titled The Long Way. The band will be touring the UK in March. http://thecoronas.net/
