Introducing: Overcoats – NYC Duo Ready Their Debut Album + Unveil New Single Details.
‘YOUNG’ LP Released 21st April via Arts & Crafts.
New York based duo Overcoats are pleased to announce details of their debut album, ‘YOUNG’.
To coincide with the album’s announcement, Overcoats are also proud to unleash new single, ‘Hold Me Close’.
Listen To ‘Hold Me Close’
Overcoats are two former college roommates Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell, who co-wrote all twelve songs on ‘YOUNG’. The two were drawn to each other when they first met as teenagers in 2011, and forging a closeness that, by their own admission, verges on sisterhood. They describe the first time hearing each other sing as an epiphany: the harmony of their voices leading to personal, individual discovery.
‘YOUNG’ will be released on 21st April via Arts and Crafts Records (Broken Social Scene, Feist, Japandroids, BADBADNOTGOOD). Co-produced by Nicolas Vernhes (The War On Drugs, Dirty Projectors) and Autre Ne Veut, ‘YOUNG’ is a story about growing up, told through the lens of two young women.
The lead single ‘Hold Me Close’ deals with the complexities of love set to a backdrop of lush electronic beats and garnished with seamlessly intertwining harmonies.
NPR Music named Overcoats as its favourite discoveries at SXSW last year, and the duo ranked #3 on NPR’s Listeners Poll of favourite new artists of 2016.
‘YOUNG’ weaves a tapestry of crystalline vocals with synths and rich bass lines. From the subdued introspection of ‘Kai’s Song’ to the thumping two-step and club-ready brass of ‘Leave The Light On’, ‘YOUNG’ showcases a striking range for the duo. While their seamless vocal interplay and contemplative lyrics remain at the core of their sound, ‘YOUNG’ is also rich with experimentation and sonic surprises.
Overcoats set off on a US tour in support of Tennis this Spring, with European tour dates expected to be announced imminently.
