Marking their first official release, Warriors is the stunning new single from burgeoning folk group CoCo and The Butterfields.
Having emerged back in 2011, the Canterbury group has quickly established themselves as one of the most exciting folk bands in the UK. From their humble beginnings busking in their hometown, the band have gone on to support the likes of The Pogues, King Charles and Bastille, and picked up numerous awards during their journey, including the prestigious UK Live and Unsigned 2012 competition. Their unique blend of folk, pop and hip-hop has amassed the group a considerable fan base, which was highlighted recently as they played to 1,200 at the sold-out Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury.
Having built up this solid foundation, CoCo and the Butterfields are now set to release their first official single ‘Warriors’. A great song choice, the track showcases the band’s distinct sound quite succinctly. Opening with the song’s powerful chorus line, delicious harmonies and infectious melodies capture the listener immediately. This builds into a foot-stomping instrumental section highlighting the band’s talents. Finding a place amongst this varied instrumentation is acoustic guitar, banjo, violin, double bass and percussive parts from beatboxer Jamie Smith. Superbly catchy and uplifting, the single should see the band continue their rise to success.
The Warriors single is set for release on July 29th. Listen to the track here: https://soundcloud.com/cocoandthebutterfields/warriors-1/s-frgat
