CANDY COFFINS – ” Once Do It With Feeling “

Posted: October 20, 2022 in MUSIC

South Carolina postpunk outfit Candy Coffins are releasing their album ‘Once Do It With Feeling’ – a haunting and highly melodic gift ahead of Halloween. Invoking the spirit of Echo & The Bunnymen, The Cure, Psychedelic Furs and Afghan Whigs, this loaded 10-track collection showcases solid song writing full of emotion and sonically saturated. Stereo Embers Magazine calls them “a rather stunning band”, noting that this album “might very well be one of the year’s best… a stirring song-cycle about the lifespan of romantic love, chronicling both its chemical and frenzied beginning and its inevitable messy demise. What goes on in between? The usual: hope, betrayal, depression, optimism, reconstruction, life-force depletion and endless nights alone in dark rooms”.

“Once Do It With Feeling” chronicles a relationship from the onset of the first crack to its complete crumbling dissolution. All the feelings and emotions of tumult are captured here, from both persons’ perspectives. The record showcases the mature strides the song writing has made and relates these themes via the vehicle of the band in its confident, cohesive current form.
