Coasts—maybe you’ve heard of them, maybe you haven’t. Comprised of Chris Caines (vocals), Liam Willford (guitar), James Gamage (bass), David Goulbourn (keyboard) and Ben Street (drums), this five-piece band from the UK is no stranger to the music scene in the US.

New Desert Blues are finally getting the recognition they deserve. It feels like ages ago that we first premiered their debut single “Thom.” Two years later and Zane Lowe is revealing their latest track “Zachary” as Next Hype on BBC Radio 1. “Zachary” is another taste of the South Coast five-piece’s nu-wild-west sound (now self-dubbed “noir americana”), a chilling mix of indie rock, folk and red-blooded country. Although unlike their previous work, there’s something hopeful — and dare we say poppy — about this one. Nothing wrong with that though; even the bleakest cowboy stories have their ...
