CORAL MOONS “I Feel Alive” Video Premiere + Interview via POPMATTERS

August 1, 2021 by 1888media

Boston retro rockers Coral Moons have released the official music video for “I Feel Alive,” the lead track from their debut album, Fieldcrest. Acclaimed culture outpost PopMatters hosted the exclusive premiere with an accompanying in-depth interview with vocalist Carly Kraft.

Here’s an excerpt:

“It gets me so amped thinking about how that song came to life,” continues Kraft, who also plays rhythm guitar. “When we were arranging it, I really felt like the band understood the vision of the song. Justin came in and totally rewrote all the original chords I had for the song, and that’s where it really became a driving rock song, which I think speaks more to the lyrical content than it was before.”

The single hit digital platforms July 16 with Carly commenting, “I Feel Alive is a liberation song. It’s a song that lets go of an old part of yourself and people that no longer serve you. It’s a personal anthem and reminder that you are in the driver’s seat of your own life.”

Boldly kicking off their their debut album, Fieldcrest, an evocative 9-story telepathy of liberation and salvation produced by Sam Kassirer (Lake Street Dive, Josh Ritter, The Dustbowl Revival), “I Feel Alive” is a powerful call-to-arms for a path forward. Other featured tracks include “Winnebago,” “Like We Used To” and “Beach Song.”

The band, which also includes Justin Bartlett (Guitar, Vocals), Manuel Camacho (Bass, Synth) and Kevin O’Connell (Drums, Percussion), is gearing up for a series of shows in the Northeast including a Sunday slot at the Levitate Music and Arts Festival. Other confirmed acts for the two-day pop-up fest include Billy Strings, Grace Potter, Trevor Hall, The Elevators, and Ripe.
