Just Listen: Coast Modern – The Way it Was

Coast Modern

Words: Lauren Grigor

unnamedSince Coast Modern popped(!) up on our radar last year with the catchy Hollow Life, the LA low-key funky surf pop duo have evolved into a quirky brand of two funny guys, trying to navigate life and materialism in the most superficial city in the world with no money – just spirit and good times. Now, enough about the band, on to the song itself!

Compared to previous tracks, The Way it Was starts out unassuming and feels a bit stripped back – still retaining those cruisy summer vibes we’ve come to know and love. You think you’re at then end but then in all of their wisdom, Coast Modern hit us with a hip hop genre and tempo change. I’m not complaining, it totally works and makes the song feel more like a comprehensive stand alone single rather than a seasonal album filler. With their clear and earnest lyrics and unique approach to production, I can’t get enough of these guys. More please.
