"...Ad​elaide​’s Koral & The Goodbye Horses straddle a line between giants like PJ Harvey and more contem​porary voices like Ainslie Wills and Anna Calvi" - Rip It Up

“Koral’s performance will reaffirm your faith in the power of live music...” – CityMag

“Her vocal ability is second to none, and her guitar chops of a high standard… You will not want to miss such an incredible talent in the flesh.” – CargoArt Magazine

Nocturnes is the soundtrack to long nights spent on the open road, traveling heavy with heartbreak as you leave everything behind.

It’s the hypnotic sound of wheels on bitumen that dulls the nightmare and the beautiful bleak landscape which waits at every turn. It’s raw pain tempered by the lure of the horizon with its pale, distant promise of new beginnings.

Throughout the record, Koral’s haunting vocals shift between twisted lullaby to world-weary rage, with spacious guitars and driving drumbeats providing a atmospheric backdrop. One moment she has the bruised vulnerability and fragile beauty of a wounded bird, the next she is releasing the powerful, defiant scream of a woman re-birthed from the ashes of bad, bad love. It’s grown up rock that’s raw, honest and a little screwed up.

Walking away never sounded so good.

At 11, Koral discovered an old record player at a garage sale and spent her only dollar on the vinyl that caught her eye: Pink Floyd’s The Wall. A chance gift of Jeff Buckley’s Grace in her teen years, the music store clerk’s suggestion of Uh Huh Her, her father’s favourite Zeppelin’s IV and big brother’s stolen copy of Vulgar Display of Power all have something to answer for in her sound. ... more
