Their début single, Selfish Gene, was revealed last week – and what a joy it is to discover.
The grumbling, groaning bass and percussion threaten to cause their own mid-atlantic tsunami as they rumble through the speakers, to be joined by a disarticulated vocal that carries in and out of earshot as though dispersing on the wind while the scissoring guitar snaps through the ears akin to an irritated wasp – all the listener is required to do is turn up the volume and allow the washes of vocal and bustles of instrumentation in Selfish Gene to make their own way around the room.
I am already bemoaning there is only one track – so I am off to play it once again – while looking forward to new songs.
The Scottish celtic-rock band Coast were first introduced in 2013 and it is good to catch up with their journey from time to time…
Coast – No More Heroes
…Having built up a strong European following over the years it is not a great surprise that they were recently captured in live performance in Denmark with the track No More Heroes from their most recent LP Windmills In The Sky.
The Scottish sadcore project Point Cove releases the EP They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To on the 28th.
Cello, Piano and drum-stems are fed through an FL Studio sequencer creating the warm analogue frequencies which slowly uncurl around the listener while the specific instruments selected to create the music affords the songs their alluring melancholic air, with the spoken word lyric being added on top of the sequenced elements create a contrasting sharpness to the pieces.
My pick of the four songs on They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To (which is available on bandcamp) being the closer Hear My Voice.
