Corella - Drifting

Following on from last year's anthemic “Don’t Stop Me”, Manchester’s Corella have shared plans for their eagerly-anticipated debut album ‘Once Upon A Weekend’, due out May 3rd 2024. Leading the announcement the band have shared their charged up new single Drifting that sees them deliver their high energy melodies and towering pop choruses in fine style. Speaking about the new offering, they said, "Drifting is all about being younger and completely carefree. Exploring the jungle that is your neighbourhood, getting up to no good with your friends and making memories that last a lifetime. This transpires through later life as you try and find your path but never seem to find it, you just bounce from day to day doing as you please as you did when you were a kid." The single is accompanied by an official video directed by Jay Brasier-Creagh. “We wanted to capture the stories of our upbringing and childhood, but through an older man’s perspective of reminiscing on his fonder, younger years.” The band explains. “Portraying the metaphor of drifting through life, seeing where your path takes you, but then ending up here- a care home. It’s the little things in life that trigger flash backs and all of sudden you’re encapsulated in your 10 year old self again, roaming care free with 0 responsibilities, out with your mates and living for the moment. We wanted the viewer to question - is it really reliving the past, or is it the reality of an old, tired mind losing sanity and longing for that free spirit it once had.” Take a watch for yourselves below.
