Sometimes the only way to get ahead is to stop following the leader, and start running your own race. Coast Modern flies out of the pack on their self-titled debut with a refreshingly uninhibited sound for disenchanted dreamers everywhere. Building on an admiration for the spirit of misfit alternative bands and the fearless ethos of modern hip hop, the duo creates alternative pop with a wink that aims to push the genre into the future.

"Hollow Life" is an anthem for restless souls everywhere. "Racing towards a dream on the horizon / Gimme something better than this Hollow Life," Coleman Trapp sings over plinking marimba mashed up with angular fuzzy bass and booming 808 kick drums. "The song is about finding distance from what is hindering you, whether it be physical or mental distance," explains Trapp. "But we're no gurus. We're just trying to let people know that we're here figuring this shit out too."

On the other end of the duo's musical spectrum is the bouncy tribute to nascent romance, "Dive" and the psychedelic, "Comb My Hair." Digging deeper, there is the group's wistful meditation on the passage of time, "Wild Things," and, "Frost," crackling with imperfection. Clearly Coast Modern are capable of covering a large swath of musical territory, yet a strong, self-aware voice and a sense of groove tie them all together.
