Golden Coast 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 while 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.
The boys reminisce about simpler days on their new single, "Recess," when all that mattered was scoring grassy knees and chasing your best buddy around the scorching blacktop. This tune has all the trappings of a modern summer jam: great hook, danceable beat and clean synth earworms. A nostalgic tune has never felt more current and fresh. This is the first single off of their debut EP set to be released this Fall. If any of the other songs on the EP are half as infectious, we’ve got a pretty good feeling about this one.
