Coasts – ‘Lions’ | Single Review

Coasts: Lions
Released: 13th August

With their newest single, Coasts take their unique brand of vintage-tinged calipso-indie into even hookier realms.

With an odd juxtaposition of twinkling whimsical guitar and darkly apocalyptic lyrics, this track takes the band’s already maturing sound to altogether more brooding territory.

Angst-ridden Walkmen infused vocals float poignantly over thick synth layers with ease, broken by off kilter guitar frolics. Despite the upbeat tempo, this track paints a nostalgic picture which remains unsulied by standard ‘on-trend’ cliche, preferring an innocent accessibility sure to engage immediately with their growing fanbase.
