Teenage five-piece, Coastal Cities are set to release a new single on Once Upon A Time Records on the 30th of July 2012.
‘Relief’, a song about the desperation of youth to break out and start living their dreams, is the bands second single and comes backed with another new song ‘The Voyage’. Both tracks were recorded earlier this year in Hackney, London, with new British producer Hugh Worskett.
Available to download, the new single is the follow up to their recent debut ‘Think Tank’ EP which was released in December 2011 and picked up airplay from amongst others Huw Stephens, Jen Long and Rob Da Bank at Radio 1, Steve Lamacq and Chris Hawkins at 6 Music, XFM’s John Kennedy, Charlie Ashcroft and Paul Lester at Amazing Radio amongst others.
Coastal Cities formed 2009 in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, when Declan (guitar/vocals), Sean (guitar) and Lewis (drums) met in school detention and discovered a mutual love of 80's New Wave and dance music as well as a shared lethargy with the pop-punk/hardcore bands that dominated the local music scene. The three started practicing together in a family garden shed and after recruiting Dan (bass) and William (keys). Although the band have so far only played a handful of live shows they are developing a growing fanbase and can count The Drums as well as the aforementioned radio disc jockeys among their followers.
Coastal Cities will play the following shows over the Summer, more dates will be announced in the very near future.
