Coast – That Old Atlantic Sky – Video

It has been over three years since the Scottish alt-rock band Coast last featured.

In the intervening period Coast have been busy, with, amongst other things a relocation from the South coast of England to the West coast of Scotland – they are also due to release the LP Windmills In The Sky later in the year.

There is a familiarity to the sound in the track, from the forthcoming album, That Old Atlantic Sky though there is also a deeper texturing within which Coast are able to extract a palpable intense emotional presence as the just over six minutes track floats from the speakers.

Delayed slightly in release from June of last year, the bakers dozen track Visions Of Symmetry is a welcome addition to the playlist. Echo Arcadia are able to deliver an intensity of sound which is lain across the listener akin to placing a warming blanket over a  guest who has drifted to sleep on an armchair.

Within the sixth of the compositions – Ghosts – there are unhurried gradually evolving themes which are played out through different instrumentation dropping in and out of earshot along with well judged shifts in pace and intensity and an emotive duality of voices, giving the song its hold over the listener in a gentle, yet comforting, embrace.

Visions Of Symmetry is available on Amazon.*

With only two tracks around, over a year apart, the output is not prolific by any means, though when an appearance is made it is prescient.

The newest track to appear WHERE2NOW lyrically is self-explanatory and there is no need to add any commentary.

Terrestria – Collide – Single Review

Terrestria is a Scottish indie-rock quintet.

Today they released their début single Collide.

A just over four and a half minutes track that melts influences from indie-dance to soaring rock riffs, which they are able to turn around to an output which simultaneously has fleet-footed sparkle to it, driving pacing and spacious melodies, without the listener ever feeling lost in the sounds that swell around the room.

A well put together début – Collide builds its intensity through the composition, opening with jangling guitar and closing with roaring combinations, not an easy mix of ideas to bring together and to their credit Terrestia demonstrate that innate ability in a first offering which sets them a high bar to reach for future releases.

Currently actively pursuing gigs, the single can’t but help in that quest.
