Playing alongside bands like Walk the Moon and Young the Giant, Nashville-based quartet, COIN, definitely started this year off on the right foot. With the help of Grammy producer-of-the-year nominee, Jay Joyce, their self-titled debut LP is released today. Together, they combine synth pop and indie rock to create addictive melodies that you just can’t get out of your head.
COIN recently introduced “Run” as the first single off the record. The synth keyboard sounds and strong vocals of lead singer, Chase Lawrence, mixed with a catchy chorus create a smooth song that’s easy to keep on repeat.
The pairing of an upbeat bass line from Zachary Dyke and guitar riffs from Joe Memmel produce a truly addictive tune that makes you nostalgic for the July heat and ice cold lemonades. Accompanied by the booming percussions of drummer, Ryan Winnen, lyrics like “pick a fight, set the house on fire, with bombs in your eyes, well the matter never seemed to make you afraid,” create imagery that has you craving carefree summer nights.
With a busy year ahead of them, COIN will undoubtedly be welcomed into the music scene with open arms in 2015.
