Delicate but rapid. Smooth but heavy. These characteristics usually stand as opposites, but COAST's debut weaves these elements together in faultless form.
High in energy and full of energetic instrumentals, you can hear hot flushes of heavy rhythmic jazz similar to Kneebody, Mark Guiliana Quartet and Donny McCaslin throughout the album, along with a gentle hint of early BadBadNotGood’s contemporary sheen.
"This is fresh modern music that is beautiful, energising, inventive, creative…beautifully played, thoughtfully conceived, interesting, funky and lyrical all at the same time."
- ARIA award winning jazz composer Sandy Evans
