Reliably informed

Following November’s debut EP You Haven’t Seen The Last of Me, Cora Manchester proves her titular prophecy true with the release of Forbidden Love. From the culturally ingrained star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet to modern TV interpretations, prohibited love infuses human history and is integral to understanding our desires and emotional capacity; Cora beautifully expresses these concepts in a song blanketed in eerie wonder.

Sombre tones, reminiscent of Lorde, meet classic orchestral instruments, crashing drums and twinkling bells. An enchantment is cast over the listener as you become immersed in Cora’s vocals and lyrical allure. Forbidden Love captures the cries of lovers lost, unrequited love and the melancholy that accompanies loving somebody you can never have in one fell swoop.
