FRESH: ‘Don’t Let Me Go’ – Coastlines

Coastlines return with “Don’t Let Me Go”.

by Christopher Smith

Coastlines – who we featured earlier this year with their single “Terminal” – are back with “Don’t Let Me Go”. The aband tell us: “This single is the second of a growing collection of singles tracked live at HoneyTone Studios in Wisconsin. It was a late Halloween night and I was holding my 1 year old son, trying to lay him down for bed. We forgot to take his lion mask off, but it was late and he wanted to keep wearing it. I tried to lay him down and he refused. He didn’t want to let go. He needed his daddy for a minute longer. This song is written for my oldest son, Griffin”.

Coastlines are a trio of storytellers who blur the line between indie and mainstream pop. In 2017, vocalist Brady Lee and guitarist Elliott Phillips teamed together to capture a collection of dreamy vignettes, inspired by Phillips’ travels abroad and Lee’s first experiences as a father. They were joined late that year by producer Justin Ginn, whose work is inspired largely by his childhood experiences growing up the Eastern European country of Hungary. The band produces remotely as the trio is currently located in Wisconsin, Texas, and Poland.

In July 2018, Coastlines released their debut EP, “Hotel Heart”, as the first installment of their collective storytelling. Hotel Heart focused on the tension between youthful innocence and the realities of growing up. Each song based around a specific memory or life event the band shares with fans in personal posts on social media. In February 2019, the band released “Neon”, the first of an ongoing collection of singles exploring darker moments of disillusionment, misplaced feelings of responsibility, and relationships gone awry.
