Coastal Cities: The Voyage
No, we don’t desperate while listening to commercial radio stations. We know some shinning minds are out there creating musical master-pieces, and some of them are not old enough to be admitted at their own concert places.
With the 5 members of Coastal Cities having literally just finished school, ‘Relief’ is a song about the desperation of youth to break out and start living their dreams. It is the bands second single and comes backed with another new song ‘The Voyage’. Both tracks were recorded earlier this year in Hackney with new up and coming British producer Hugh Worskett.
Coastal Cities formed in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire when Declan (guitar/vocals), Sean (guitar) and Lewis (drums) met in school detention and discovered a mutual love of 80’s New Wave and dance music as well as a shared lethargy with the pop-punk/hardcore bands that dominated the local music scene. The three friends started practicing together in a family garden shed and then recruited Dan (bass) and William (keys) to complete the band’s line up. Although they have so far only played a handful of live shows they are developing a growing fanbase and can count The Drums as well as the aforementioned radio disc jockeys among their followers.
