Five-piece ‘Coasts’ from Bristol have just released their latest single ‘Let Me Love You’, another taste of new music after their debut album.
Previously, ‘Coasts’ have been said to have several huge feel-good hits, such as ‘Oceans’, which was released in 2014. The single received support from Greg James and Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1, earning them a place on the line up for Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Glasgow. The band followed this up with a sold out show at Dingwalls in Camden, and were then named as iTunes ‘Ones to Watch’ in July 2014.
In 2015, they headlined London’s Scala and KOKO. They performed at Californian music festival Coachella in April, and played the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK in August.
Their debut album, ‘Coasts’, was released in January 2016 and received mixed reviews. Their music provided many a daytime radio banger, but on the other hand, it seemed everything unique about the band had been squeezed out and replaced with one-dimensional hits, sounding just too similar to one another.
Upon the release of ‘Let Me Love You’, similar thoughts have been echoed; critics unsure on whether the catchy lyrics and upbeat rhythms outweigh the ‘just another pop-rock song’ feeling.
Whatever your opinion on the quality of the music itself, it is undeniably a summer sing-a-long hit, perfect for those lazy days in the sun.
‘Coasts’ are heading out on a UK tour soon if you want to check them out:
