EDITORS’ NOTES

On their third album, COIN captures the highs and lows of growing up over a bright, synth-driven sound. The Nashville four-piece comes back a little bit wiser but no less euphoric, as if they haven’t completely let go of the summertime feels of 2017’s How Will You Know If You Never Try. Here, the overall mood is uplifting and joyful—tracks like “Valentine” and “Simple Romance” mesh groovy rhythms and jittery guitars over frontman Chase Lawrence’s confessions. The sleek neon rush of “Youuu,” where Lawrence just can’t erase the memory of his ex, wouldn’t sound out of place in a John Hughes movie: “And she tastes just like you/But it’s always been you.” (And yes, he does emphasize the “you” in case you're not fully convinced.) The band slots two ambient interludes in between, layering hypnotic tones with light touches of orchestration to elicit a feeling of escape.

Absolutely fantastic Album!!!

This is the 2nd best album I’ve listened to this year. There has been a lot of music that has come out so far, I didn’t know much about COIN last year. This album should really help them grow their fanbase, this will be one of the underrated albums of 2020.
