See the Merseyside band perform tracks from their latest album Move Through The Dawn - plus a Coral classic.
The Coral have released their ninth studio album Move Through The Dawn and to mark the occasion, the band came into the Radio X session studio to play some of the new material.
Watch the Radio X session version of the second track, Reaching Out For A Friend.
Speaking about the album's glorious opening track Eyes Like Pearls, Skelly says: "I usually write with the guitar. Didn't even mess around. The chorus just came to me when I was watching telly and it was just stuck on a loop."
