hmv's Next Big Thing... #14 COASTS

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Bristol fivesome COASTS and their ginormous anthems...


Who Are They?

COASTS formed back in 2011 after meeting while studying at university in Bath and subsequently chose Bristol as the place to unite as a fivesome and attempt world domination. So fat that's amounted to a whole lot of touring and four EPs. That and an appearance on Made In Chelsea...


Who Do They Sound Like?

This is big, swaggering, indie rock with a chorus chiselled out of the finest pop gold. There's the same bounce that makes each of Bastille's tunes stick to the inside of your head like fly paper, the stadium underpinnings of the early days of The Killers and the same eye for a chorus as Coldplay had when they were first starting out. 


Why Should I Be Excited?

They've got enormous songs and they lit up any stage they walk out on. 


Can I Hear Something?

Sure. You can hear their new single 'Modern Love' below and purchase the track in our digital store here.
