COQUIN MIGALE release their new single ‘Gold’ taken from the EP Feel via End Of The Trail Records on 20th April 2015.

An ambitious composition from the act, the perfect soundtrack to those eagerly anticipated summer days. This upbeat and addictive track hits all the right notes, with those dreamy vocals, fierce stop starts and glistening guitar hooks, put this single on repeat.
COQUIN MIGALE formed in 2013 at Northumbria University and released their debut EP The Yellow Room as free download soon afterwards. Champions of the new wave of northern indie COQUIN MIGALE have already caught the attention ofNME, Generator and Fresh On The NetTom Robinson featured ‘Gold’ on the firstBBC 6 Music Introducing Mixtape of 2015, saying “currently the best unsigned band in Newcastle. Surely it won’t be long until the majors start knocking?” COQUIN MIGALE were personally asked by PEACE to be the main support act their 7th March Newcastle CLUNY gig, and after a recent London showcase it seems Tom’s prophecy has indeed been proven correct. Whether drawing comparisons to 90’s shoegaze bands or more mainstream Britpop acts of the same era the reviews have all been rather good. COQUIN MIGALE featured in NME’s Radar section on 24th Jan 2015, ‘Gold’ is built on gale force guitars and math-rock rhythms twinned with singer Alex Soper’s soaring vocals’. BACKSEAT MAFIA commented on ‘Gold’, ‘Sways back and forth with a mixture of RIDE like guitars.

COQUIN MIGALE are Alex Soper (vocals & guitar), Matthew Wooton (guitar), Stevie Kane (bass) and Dan Rawlinson (drums).
