We loved Coin when we caught them back at the winter edition of East Nashville Underground. Their live show further wowed us when they recently opened for Paper Route and HalfNoise at Exit/In. However, it’s their brand new single, “Atlas,” the second from their latest EP, 1992, that really seals the deal. Coin have always had a knack for substantive, synth-lined indie pop, but “Atlas” takes their songwriting chops (and production tightness) to the next level, fully realizing the band’s ability to craft hypnotic, well-balanced pop songs that don’t take themselves too seriously, but are seriously well-written. In summary, it’s the quintessential Coin song: a fun, upbeat, feel-good anthemic romp that lands somewhere between our pals El El and the aforementioned Paper Route (or, for a non-Nashville point of reference, somewhere between Walk the Moon and Youngblood Hawke). A video for the track is forthcoming but, for now, you can stream it below:
Coin also recently announced a headlining performance at Mercy Lounge on Sunday, Sept. 1, along with a great bill of The Young International, Canopy Climbers, and Phin. You can grab your advance tickets for that one right here.
