The band name? Vaguely Nordic. Their home base? Brooklyn. But sonic vibe-wise, on this, Coastgaard‘s upcoming sophomore album, is all left coast.
Jangly, northwesty, mid-aughts indie cardigan pop strolls along with California beach hooks and harmonies, with just a mist of Seattle’s usual forecast. Or as they state on the song “Black White Fuzz”: “They let the air of the west coast in.” Indeed they do, but you could just as well use this album for a cold February, east coast, 3 a.m. regret jag and come out having decent dreams.
Check out the streaming debut of Devil On The Balcony, in advance of its official February 26 via eOne Music.
