1.) Coastal's music borders on reverent. restraint and simplicity are key to the overall sound. Smooth basslines, wispy drum movements, melodic, delayed guitar work, a delicate vocal presence, and subdued organ keys all combine to make the music flow with a relaxed simplicity that is truly beautiful. Coastal is the hybrid of several musicians who have played out for years in their respective bands, yet have never really made the music they wanted to.
