New Track From Coast Modern – “Dive”

The LA duo Coast Modern – comprised of Coleman Trapp and Luke Atlas – release their newest song, “Dive” – a certified summer jam that has all the elements that make for a perfect night, with lyrics that talk about sunrises, love, and of course – in the bands own words, the “pool of life.” Speaking of the track, the duo added; “The moment right before a first kiss, a sticky night by the beach bonfire, the endless summers of youth… we bottled some of these feelings and cast them into the churning waves for the world to receive. ‘Dive’ is a song about making the whole of existence your ocean to explore.”

The song comes from the duos debut record, which is set for release later this year via 300 Entertainment / +1 Records. Like a trip to Disneyland; with each song like a stop in another world, Coast Modern’s debut album is a rollercoaster ride through a musical spectrum that spans from introspective acoustic streams of consciousness to psychedelic jams to relaxed dancehall vibes. Coast Modern are capable of covering a large swath of musical territory, yet a strong, self-aware voice and a sense of groove tie them all together.

After releasing their debut single, “Hollow Life”, the duo have gone on to release a handful of tracks in their short tenure as a band – the anthemic “Animals,” summer-tinged “Guru” and jungle cruise jam; “The Way It Was” (all four of which sat at the top of the HypeMachine charts), and followed up with “Comb My Hair” and “Pockets Full of No” – tracks to kick you out of the most serious of funks. The band would later receive praise from across the blogosphere and fashion press. Their tracks would creep their way to the airwaves, garnering heavy rotation from the likes of SiriusXM Alt Nation and KCRW. Coast Modern made their live debut at SXSW, playing their first shows together as a band, and were subsequently scooped up to tour with BORNS, The Wombats and The Temper Trap respectively. The duo just wrapped up the Alt Nation Advanced Placement Tour which saw them hit the road with Missio, 888 and Sundara Karma.

Listen to Coast Modern’s Newest Track “Pockets Full of No”

Sometimes the only way to get ahead is to stop following the leader and start running your own race. Coast Modern flies out of the pack with a refreshingly uninhibited sound for disenchanted dreamers everywhere. Building on an admiration for the spirit of misfit alternative bands and the fearless ethos of modern hip hop, the duo creates alternative pop with a wink that aims to push the genre into the future.

The LA duo – comprised of Coleman Trapp and Luke Atlas – today release their new song, “Pockets Full of No” – a kicked back and mellowed out track that seeks to have you looking on the lighter side of life.  Speaking of the track, the duo noted; ‘Pockets’ is a song about having fun with no money. When you got pockets full of no u can still have a life full of YESSSS. 

The song comes from the band’s debut record, which is set for release later this year via 300 Entertainment / +1 Records.  Like a trip to Disneyland with each song like a stop in another world, Coast Modern’s debut album is a rollercoaster ride through a musical spectrum that spans from introspective acoustic streams of consciousness to psychedelic jams to relaxed dancehall vibes.  Coast Modern are capable of covering a large swath of musical territory, yet a strong, self-aware voice and a sense of groove tie them all together.

After releasing their debut single, “Hollow Life” in late 2015, the band has had a whirlwind of a year. Releasing a handful of tracks over the next twelve months – the anthemic “Animals,”  summer-tinged “Guru” and jungle cruise jam, “The Way It Was” (all four of which sat at the top of the HypeMachine charts), the band would later receive praise from across the blogosphere and fashion press. Their tracks would creep their way to the airwaves, garnering heavy rotation from the likes of SiriusXM Alt Nation and KCRW. The band made their live debut at SXSW, playing their first shows together as a band, and were subsequently scooped up to tour with BØRNS, The Wombats and The Temper Trap respectively.

The band will be playing the Alt Nation Advanced Placement Tour this Spring with Missio, 888 and Sundara Karma, which kicks off next week in New Orleans.
