The Indie Sound Reviews Coast Modern, Who Begin US Tour This Week

The Indie Sound thinks Coast Modern‘s debut LP is more than an album. “Coast Modern brings you to a state of being present,” the site writes, mystically. “The most successful songs put you firmly into your skin. The lyrics hook onto terms that evoke texture and feeling; the layered production seems to surround you and move your body… But Coast Modern doesn’t demand anything from you. You can play this in the background, dance to it, inspect the lyrics and textures that lie beneath the uptempo energy on display, do what you please.” It truly is an eclectic release, one which has a way of “stretching time out—and not in a way that makes it drag. They achieve an odd stoner-nirvana by making three minutes feel so full it could easily be five or ten.” Read the review here.

Stations across North America are digging the Coast Modern sound, and the album shot to #17 at NACC last week. And after supporting BØRNS, The Wombats, and The Temper Trap on tour, the duo is about to set out on its first US headlining tour:
