Golden Coast conjures up its California namesake with danceable drums, sunny synths, verby guitars and just enough rasp in the falsetto to offset the levity. The duo made the trek from the mountains of Colorado and the San Jacinto desert to Los Angeles nearly a decade ago, met in college while producing and writing for various artists before finally deciding to team up and release a project of their own. Golden Coast combines the best of both their skill-sets: a mixture of electronic and organic instruments, tight production, and sanguine themes set to no shortage of instantly hooky melodies. Golden Coast gives us another indie pop gem with "Comeback Kid." The second single off of their debut EP set to be released in November, this track sports the best of everything the band has to offer. If any of the other songs on the EP are half as infectious, we've got a pretty good feeling about this.These guys are hidden gems because that's not their only great track I dig, "Recess" also shows off their smooth electronic pop vibes and I see big potential from this duo! I first discovered the LA-based duo last year with "Futurist" and was hooked. So check out "Recess" and "Futurist" below. If you like what you hear, like them on facebook for more!
Hidden Gem: Golden Coast - "Comeback Kid" *Smooth Electronic Pop
Golden Coast is officially on my radar with the release of their new single, "Comeback Kid". The track sports the best of everything this duo has to offer: a dance-able beat, hooky leads, anthemic sing-along breaks and just the right amount of head nod; I LOVE it!
