Coast Modern, On Tour and Aiming For a New NACC Peak, Strip Down For AXS

Coast Modern is known for shimmering, effervescent pop productions with layers upon layers of hooks. It’s easy to get lost in the well-constructed headphone masterpieces that Luke Atlas and Coleman Trapp create, but the songs also translate to a stripped-down setting. This effect was on evidence recently when the duo appeared at an AXS Patio Session, during which they performed acoustic versions of songs from their debut LP while discussing their art, their upcoming tour, and the group’s “metanarrative.” It’s an insightful interview – check it out, and the Coast Modern’s minimal and jangly takes on its music, here.

Coast Modern hit a new height last week at NACC, #15, and there’s no reason to think this debut deserves to slow down. Keep it on your chart, and get Coast Modern closer to the Top Ten this week. And if you can, see Atlas and Trapp on tour with a full band:
