Before I start this feature, I’d like to apologise for the atrocious behaviour I exhibited in the last review. Bannered Mare, you deserve better. Kiss, Daniel Thomas.
Right, now that’s all sorted, I can write about Birmingham-based emo-rock band Coast To Coast. I wonder how they come up with their name. Did they travel from Land’s End to John O’Groats one day? I hope so. If, sorry when, they blow up they can tell that story on Loose Women or Good Morning Britain. Just don’t smack Piers Morgan in the face. Cheers.
Unlike Piers, I like vegan sausage rolls and Coast To Coast’s new single, Sovereign. It’s a rather emotional art piece that would take prime position in any contemporary museum. Tate Modern, Saatchi Gallery, Manchester Art Gallery, listen up, these lads are creating exquisite masterpieces, and you should buy their music. Can I get a cut of the commission, though? Thanks!
Do you know what I love most about Coast To Coast? Keiran Hyland’s empowering thoughts; he’s at the forefront and controls the sorrow behind Sovereign very well. “The song title comes from the line, “thought you were sovereign now you can’t find your crown”. Referring to when I was younger, I thought I had my life set out and had a lot going for me; now I feel a bit hopeless.” I feel you, brother. I wanted to be an astronaut; now I write terrible reviews for Independent Music News. Life sucks!
Let’s get serious for a second. Sovereign is a gem, a slightly downbeat track, but also very therapeutic. No longer will you feel terrible for eating a 20-inch pizza or consuming three tubs of ice-cream in one night. Coast To Coast will slap you in the face and make you realise that life isn’t that bad. You could be Piers.
Did you enjoy the song? Be honest. If you did, I highly recommend you pre-order Coast to Coast’s upcoming EP, Sovereign, out on the 24th April through Fox Records. It includes the title track and much more. Grab your copy now before they run out. Peace.
