Overcoats recently took Billboard on a deep dive of an interview, telling the magazine all about their new album Young and their story as artists and friends. “We want our lyrics to sound like a diary entry that you weren’t supposed to see,” bandmember Hana Elion tells the magazine, explaining the intimacy on display throughout Young‘s runtime. “I’m definitely somebody that writes something down as a way to heal…, and this is just the next iteration of that, sharing those fears and those anxieties rather than leaving them in a journal,” says Elion’s co-conspirator JJ Mitchell. Read the full interview, which includes an embedded stream of the album as well as some nice videos, right here.
Young is riding up the NACC chart, hanging just outside the Top 50. It also had a great second week of adds last week as many stations received their CD copies and got them in rotation. Keep spinning this lush, gorgeous LP from this promising up-and-coming duo!
