“This album is bizarre,” writes Why You Should Love Music about the self-titled debut by Coast Modern. “But the strangeness is what I love about these songs. Though founded upon sound compositional principles, nothing about this album is predictable or generic. It somehow manages to be whimsical, pessimistic, and charming all at the same time.” The review breaks the album down to pieces, highlighting thoughtful snippets of lyrics and analyzing the individual tracks. All in all, it’s recommended for “quirky people, content pessimists, people who like alternative music, individuality, and art that doesn’t take itself too seriously.”
