Augustine – Coast [Spotify Studios Recording]

Augustine - Coast [Spotify Studios Recording]

Swedish indie-wonder Augustine shares his pulsating new single ‘Coast’, released exclusively as part of Spotify’s Studio Oyster program.

Another wonderful story told to capture the idea of how seeing a happy loving couple together stirs up painful emotions in a delicate and groovy manner.

‘Coast” is a song about loneliness, and a longing to understand this world a little better. I was confused and jealous of everything I laid my eyes on when I wrote it. And I often get struck by this feeling about wanting to escape from myself and from my body when I’m feeling down. I guess it comes down to the desire to have someone by your side who understands you and all your weird thoughts.” Augustine says.

LIONLION by Leeroy Bender

German-based indie pop/rock band, LIONLION has just shared their new single, ‘Language’.

Centred around identical twins Michael & Matthias Rückert, their music is always visually-focused and cinematic in a minimalistic manner.

Its architecture embodies functionality and thought-out design and echoes a more modernist Wes Anderson approach. In the video, this rational and clear visualisation is juxtaposed with the brothers’ emotional turmoil.

Expect their EP, ‘Rise & Fall’, to be out in October ahead of their second album ‘Perspective’, coming in spring 2020.
