Doors – 8pm
A welcome return to Coasts. They were great way back in February!
“Bristol boys Coasts muster a remarkably ambitious noise, the maturity and confidence of their compositions is amazing for such a young band. Add pensive and far-reaching lyrical content and a penchant for Manics-esque soundbites and you’ll see what made us jump at the chance to book them for our forthcoming Crack Launch Parties.” Crack Magazine
‘Stay’ is the new single from Bristol-based Coasts, and is set for release on the 26th March 2012 via Intruder Records.
After initially meeting at university in Bath, the five-piece relocated to Bristol and formed Coasts in the summer of 2011. The band describes their sound as incorporating ‘tribal drums, tropical strings, thundered keys, and lost cries.’
Debut single ‘Stay’ is a perfect example of Coasts’ brand of tropical-indie, and is infused with intelligent lyricism, mesmerising vocals and catchy guitar and percussion lines. The simple, sparse verses erupt into a pop-tinged chorus, leaving listeners drenched in the sound of summer.
‘Stay’ is the first single to be released from debut EP, ‘Wildfires.’ The band cites influences as diverse as Foals, Future Islands and The Cure, which are subtly interwoven within their own fresh and exciting sound. Coasts are already making an impact on the live scene, garnering rave reviews due to their ferocious energy, skilled musicianship, and ability to entrance a crowd.
