The New Coast – Sleeptalk

The New Coast

Tunbridge Wells (UK) locals The New Coast share ‘Sleeptalk’.

The addictive indie pop number swirls with heavy synths and echoey riffs, adding to The New Coast’s collection of distinct Southern sounds.

Speaking about the track the guys say,

“Writing ‘Sleeptalk’ felt massively cathartic for us and allowed us to explore a really personal moment in a cinematic, 3 minute pop song. Lyrically, for me, it pin points a delicate moment between two people, people who are just starting to get to know each other, but also notice these colourful and intense emotions in a very short period of time.

Even though the song is reliving a specific moment from last summer, I love the way that someone can take whatever personal vision and meaning they like from the lyrics. It almost feels necessary. I don’t think anyone is going to have the exact same sentiment sonically and lyrically, but thats the best part, its so expressive to create your own idealistic story from thewords. However, we like to make everything in our music feel cinematic and infectious, so we want to set the scene in peoples minds and hopefully it’ll take you to that place. Like you’re watching a cool movie with a soundtrack that sounds like your life.”

Draper – Worst Of Us

Draper

Kent-born, London-based Draper already has a reputation for choosing excellent singers to collaborate with as well as being a go to producer in the indie-dance world, but he has now turned himself to singing on new track ‘Worst Of Us’, which also features vocals from a mysterious woman “closer to home”.

Energising keys burst into climatic drums as Draper revives his modern pop production roots. With its anthemic melody and original lyrics, ‘Worst of Us’ will lift up the weariest of souls.

Speaking about the track, Draper explains,

“It’s about being part of a team, and no matter how crazy, how stupid, or how drunk you get it doesn’t matter. The worst of us is essentially about falling in love with a person’s flaws, and being 100% ok with every single one of them.”

‘Worst Of Us’ is out today on M:UK.
