Coasts – Your Soul:
Bristol based Coasts make sincere music that immediately resonates and strikes a deeper chord within. Their music is best equivalated to a deep breath of fresh air after being submerged in salty waters for far too long. You get this exhilaration and sense of feeling that screams through every fiber of your every being to let you know that you are alive, and for good reason too.
Think of Your Soul as a lively escape for your inner being to an island safe-haven that the world, and all its inherent woes, have yet to discover. The pacing hits in wonderful waves crashing one after another onto the pleasant shore that is the metaphorical manifestation of Your Soul. As soon as the song subsides your left immediately wising you could return to that tranquil coastline, once again walking with your feet in the soothing waters of Coasts‘ alluring indie rock.
Luckily enough the band has released, in what I’d be quite bold enough to say is, a flawless EP. Each and every song off of their four track EP, Paradise, is engrossing and seemingly paints a different climate each and every time. If Your Soul is the bright sunny day with sparse clouds, then Oceans climate might best be described as a bit overcast with a chance of thunder and intensity.
What begins by playing off as almost a hushed anthemic love ballad immediately takes off into full flight with great magnitude that completely engulfs you on the way up. Oceans is a top notch tune that i’m sure will grow immensely popular soon.
Simply put Coasts are one of those bands with so much potential for greatness it is almost scary. With the right push and placement, I could see the band becoming as much of a household name in British indie rock on this side of the pond as Biffy Clyro, Foals, or even Two Door Cinema Club. The future looks goods for these talented gentlemen, and the prospective music they are sure to release for our enjoyment looks even better.
