At last, COIN's new album is here.
The alt-pop trio has been teasing their new record Dreamland over the past few months, and on Friday, it finally arrived. The massive, 14-track project, their followup to 2017's How Will You Know If You Never Try, is the first they've released on their newly formed label Committee for Sound and Mind, in partnership with AWAL.
This is arguably also their most sonically adventurous record, as the band has clearly perfected their craft while also letting their guard down a bit with more confessional lyrics diving into personal experiences and new terrain—literally, as they recorded much of the new material while crisscrossing the globe.
“From Nashville to Seoul to London to Los Angeles, we recorded everywhere but a studio" says frontman Chase Lawrence of the new record. "For the past two years, we made this album in green rooms, bedrooms, airplanes and buses. Dreamland is a patchwork quilt of everywhere we’ve been—a sonic journal of orchestras, out of tune guitars, church choirs and iPhone voice memos.”
The new record includes previously released standout tracks "Crash My Car," "Youuu," "Valentine" and "Let It All Out," a more sober effort which showcases COIN's more vulnerable side. They've also shared a video today for their new song "Into My Arms," the opening track off the album.
Dreamland is a fitting title, with most of the record exploding with big, dazzling pop sounds, making for a thrill ride of a listen—the kind you don't want to end.
