After earning a HypeM #1 for their debut track ‘Oceans’ as well as extensive Radio 1 support for the follow-up ‘A Rush of Blood’, COASTS’ new single ‘Modern Love’ impacts on April 27th, released by Warner / Tidal / Good Soldier Songs. The single was one of Zane Lowe’s final Hottest Record selections shortly before he left Radio 1.

The Bristol-based indie-pop quintet will follow the release of the single with a unique ‘Coastal’ tour of seaside towns and river cities. Currently embarking upon a month-long North American headline tour, the band will follow the ‘Coastal’ tour – scheduled as below – with their biggest London headline show so far at London’s Koko on June 20th as well as major festival dates at Isle of Wight, T in the Park, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds:

Influenced by artists such as Foals and The Cure, COASTS have earned comparisons with the likes of The 1975, Bastille and Two Door Cinema Club.

2014 also saw ‘A Rush of Blood’ voted into the top 100 XFM and Zane Lowe tracks of the year as well as the top 10 listeners’ choice on Sirius XM Alt Nation. COASTS have also hit festivals including Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Future Festival, as well as The Great Escape.

COASTS are currently working on their debut album which will be released later this year.
