[SOUNDS OF 2018] - #4 - The New Coast

The New Coast have returned once again with ‘Caught’ and all in time before the boys head out on their UK tour. The new single by Nick Blyth and Chris Cheater has arrived before the release of their next EP, ‘My Kind Of Medicine’. Riddled with moody guitars and sensual vocals, The Tunbridge Wells duo make a righteous and demanding return with this single.

On the making of 'Caught', Blyth comments, “'Caught', lyrically dives into memories I have of Madrid, last spring. It was the first time I felt like I was sleepwalking around a city, with someone that felt otherworldly and intriguing. It encapsulates the loss of identity you convey whilst trying to work someone else out. We find solace in writing about these moments as we can pin point the mood and push our sound further & further.” The duo capture the track’s lyrical content in its shining production of washing synth pulses and vastly layered vocals, which bathe over the listener.

With a back catalouge of stunning tracks like "Home", which is a dreamy indie-pop number, awash with the pair's articulation for meaningful lyricism, "Sleeptalk" and "Melbourne" the duo are turning out dreamy-pop track after dreamy-pop track. The band are less alt-pop and more dream-pop, with some big ambient sounds, huge vocal hooks and all washed over with some great production. This is yet another reason why The New Coast are on everyone's lips in 2018, be sure to catch them at a show and to follow them on social media to keep in the loop!
