** HELL’S BELLS! COQUIN MIGALE CUDDLE UP TO THE PANDA! **
** ‘GRINDIE’ SINGLES CLUB SINGLE DUE OUT MAY 6TH! **

The Act: COQUIN MIGALE

The Release: 'GRINDIE' / 'TWANG'

The Format: DIGITAL SINGLE

The Label: fierce panda records

The Release Date: MAY 6TH 2016

The Truth: COQUIN MIGALE are from Newcastle. They consist of Alex Soper (guitar / vocals), Stevie Kane (bass), Josh Holmes (drums) and Jack Brooks (guitar) and are pronounced "Co-kane Mig-elle". 'Grindie' is their first single on fierce panda and, as the title might suggest, represents a winningly grin-worthy carcrash of grunge and indie, all smashbanging in under three manic minutes. See the lavishly moody video for 'Grindie' at www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eoXTh-XPQM

Huw Stephens premiered 'Grindie' on Radio 1 fully two months before the May 6th release date. Huw also made the single his Tip Of The Week and it was played across all 36 BBC Introducing shows, followed by another Radio 1 play from Phil Taggart. Nor is this merely a flash in the fashionable pan - 'Grindie' follows the muscular likes of previous COQUIN MIGALE tracks 'Gold', 'Socotra' and 'Luv' into the hearts of the nation's finest disc jockeying tastemakers.

Heartily justified it is, too, as 'Grindie' is lovely lunging alt.rock with spiffy riffs and broken breakdowns and dreamy choruses. It's a clever combination of style and substance whereby the vocals actually seem to be travelling on a slower ethereal plane above the low-slinging music, but don't take our words for it, take these ones here...

"Their biggest and boldest track yet...genuinely catchy out-and-out rock with howling vocals, driving bass and a punchy dreambeat." - itsallindie.com

"A constant onslaught of shifting energy...short and snappy and everything that good powerful rock music should be." - tipping-point.co.uk

Another snappy single and an album will follow on the panda in the summer, but for now go check out the COQUIN MIGALE live vibes here, here and there:
