Chris, Liam, David, Ben and James form the band Coasts. Who are Coasts, you ask, my uncultured American friend? If you were British you’d know, because they are about to bllllllow up in Old Britannia. These lads from Bristol, a seaside port city, are set to be England’s version of The Strokes, Imagine Dragons or even a little less electronic LCD Soundsystem. I’m not trying to be hyperbolic, but I love this band. They play phenomenal music without over the top histrionics.
It’s rare that a band creates art such as this that is both emotive and catchy, it’s so wonderful it’s frightening. How rare is it that a band who has yet to release an album puts out music this great? Nonexistent. If you’re in England you know what I’m talking about. I’m chasing an interview with these five young lads and then we can delve into their personality quirks and inspirations a bit more. Until then enjoy this new song by them entitled “Stones” and let me and them know what you think.
