The Coronas – Addicted to Progress (Single Review)
Addicted to Progress is the lead single from Closer to You, a new album by The Coronas. The Coronas are an Irish band that won critical acclaim with their early releases, including their debut album Heroes or Ghosts. Since then, The Coronas have become platinum-selling recording artists, playing at SXSW festival and even opening for Sir Paul McCartney. The group, now the current best selling independent group in Ireland, are preparing to release their new studio album Closer to You on May 28th, which is preceded by the release of lead single Addicted to Progress on May 21st.
Addicted to Progress is an undeniably catchy song, which recently spent more than 13 weeks in the top 5 of the Irish airplay chart. An upbeat composition, Addicted to Progress is a pop-tinged indie recording. ‘If I had a rainbow / I’d put the end of it at our toes’, The Coronas sing in the chorus, ‘so nobody could find us / Let the colours always bind us’. At just 2:53 minutes long, The Coronas ensure that the lead single remains a catchy, standout track from their latest offering. Other highlights of the release include the opening track, which is an up-tempo affair entitled What You Think You Know, in addition to My God and the unique closing track Make It Happen.
The Coronas will be performing numerous UK tour dates in early May in preparation for the upcoming release of their new album, including a concert at Cargo in Shoreditch, London on May 10th.
