Coasts - A Rush Of Blood

Coasts look pretty happy with themselves don’t they? And so they should be. Because their ‘new’ single is pretty stupendous.

It has nothing to do with that Coldplay album, but A Rush Of Blood shows a similar sense of ambition to Chris Martin and co. It’s big. Very big. Which probably means we should be using a word like gigantic, whopper or heavyweight, but we quite like the word big, after all we don’t want to get too bloated and carried away. If you’re a fan of soaring indie rock (take Sons & Lovers as a reference point with a hint of Foals in the guitar picking plus the accessibility of a band like The 1975), then A Rush Of Blood is going to exactly your thing. 

The tune was originally released earlier this year but this version found the band joining forces with producers Mike Spenser (Rudimental/Alex Clare) and James Rushent (Does It Offend You Yeah) to re-work and revamp the song and the results are impressive. The track comes from the bands forthcoming EP which you can pre-order here and you can catch the band on a  tour that takes in a fair few English cities plus Glasgow in late November / December, including Breaking More Waves home city of Portsmouth. See you down the front for that one?
