‘You Had My Heart’ is the first track from Tunbridge Wells based quintet Coronation Ball. This catchy track was produced by Hugh Worskett who has worked with the likes of Dog is Dead and Crystal Fighters, and is a perfect introduction to the band’s ambitious, eclectic melodicism.
Frontman Dominic Scott cites “Be My Baby” by the Ronettes as an inspiration for the interplay for the lead vocal and the backing vocals, and Bill Medley’s delivery on The Righteous Brothers‘ “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” as an influence on the middle section. Along with the titans of 60’s pop, the band take equal influence from modern hip-hop production and leftfield indie-rock, and you can feel that in the brooding swells and twists that underpin the track.
