Golden Coast’s debut release conjures up its California namesake with danceable drums, sunny synths, verby guitars and just enough rasp in the falsetto to offset the levity. The duo made the trek from the mountains of Colorado and the San Jacinto desert to Los Angeles nearly a decade ago, met in college (classmates and friends with Brent Kutzle from OneRepublic and Cubbie Fink from Foster the People), and started producing and writing for various artists before finally deciding to team up and release a project of their own. Golden Coast combines the best of both their skill-sets: a mixture of electronic and organic instruments, tight production, and sanguine themes set to no shortage of instantly hooky melodies.

New Vancouver indie act Sprïng was birthed from the destruction of favourite local spazz-punk band the SSRIs. When I found out that the new project would be called “Sprïng,” I wondered if the band was determined to hide from people on the internet. I sat down to chat with the guys in Sprïng in the band’s kitchen and the boys assured me that if you manage to type the “ï” that the band is the only google search result–along with some World of Warcraft thing. Then they taught me how to type an “i” with an umlaut, among many other things. Listen to our chat!
Sprïng “Pastel” Why did the band choose this song to play during the show? You’ll have to listen to the interview!
The SSRIs “Rows” Here’s a track that will show this new band’s music roots.
the interview show is everywhere!
