IT seems like The Coral have been around forever. Despite the oldest member of the band being just 26, the Scouse septuplet have already released five albums.

Their latest, Roots and Echoes, is packed with the usual blend of 1960s psychedelia and indie rock and roll.

This is probably the best album The Coral have produced, and it is evident they have done a lot of growing up since the release of their last record, The Invisible Invasion, in 2005. Who's Gonna Find Me gets Roots and Echoes off to a cracking start, while In the Rain and Remember Me are also little gems.

Alongside these more upbeat songs, the melancholic Not So Lonely stands out as a potential hit single.

Roots and Echoes is an excellent return to form for The Coral, and its relaxed melodic sound makes it perfect for the belated arrival of summer.
