The Cordels
‘ first single, Dance in Time, sees the twentysomething Warrington three-piece digging deep for their lyrical themes whilst deftly crafting an anthemic, indie-pop classic.

An early demo of the track found its way to top producer, Jim Lowe [quote below], who immediately offered his mixing skills to polish it into the gem it is now.

With a songwriting dexterity and musical prowess that belie their years, The Cordels have won airplay in some well-respected quarters. Radio 1’s Zane Lowe gives early support, as does Tom Robinson for BBC 6 Music and Loz Guest at Kerrang Radio.

After only three months in the current line-up The Cordels are drawing comparisons with the early days of that other classic three-piece, The Police, with each band member bringing a simmering passion and an effortless cool that explode into a frenetic, self-assured live performance.

Dance in Time is a fan favourite and questions how free we really are living in the affluent West and how much we’re constrained by social pressure, work, money and debt.
