West Midlands crew Coast To Coast are pleased to reveal details of their forthcoming third EP. The World Doesn’t Work will see the light of day on 26thOctober via Fox Records.
Vocalist Keiran Hyland sets the scene: “The title refers to how negative experiences can affect you and your loved ones. Tracks like ‘The Sun is Dim’ and ‘Good & Grim’ relate to my personal outlook on life and the world, one which can sometimes seem negative and pessimistic.
The EP title is a lyric from the track ‘Boxing’ and refers to a time when I felt very low and isolated, with a warped view of the world. I think that lyric, in particular, summed up the whole feel of the EP.”
Meanwhile, lead guitarist Alex Edge says of the beautifully rendered artwork: “Artist Brandi Strickland manages to perfectly convey a sense of being overwhelmed, with how busy and chaotic the piece is, which I think it really fits in with the themes of the EP. We fell in love as soon as we saw it.”
In tandem with enlightening us of ‘The World Doesn’t Work’, the quintet has released lead video single ‘Be Kind’. Portraying an array of characters who appear to be disconnected from their surroundings, Keiran explains: “It is a song about how another person can change your perspective on things, allowing you to see the world differently.”
