COAST TO COAST – ‘Post Graduation’ video

COAST TO COAST
Birmingham pop-punk band, COAST TO COAST are delighted to announce their new EP The Length Of A Smile will be released on 24th March through Fox Records. To celebrate the news the band are streaming a brand new music video for Post Graduation, directed & produced by Henry Cox, vocalist of BOSTON MANOR (Pure Noise Records). You can watch it right here!

Explaining the thoughts behind the song, vocalist Keiran Hyland said:

“I recently graduated from university after the three best years of my life, I said goodbye to the mates I made and packed my bags up to come back home to live with my parents, and there was a sudden crushing realisation that things would likely never be the same. The lyrics are about how my time living away from home went so fast and how I took everything for granted, and now I was just back where I started three years ago. One of my favourite lyrics is “We watched a pile of letters build up on the living room floor” which refers to how you could feel a change in all the mates I had made over the three years, it was like everyone was on a bit of a downer and had realised that this experience was over.”

Signing to Fox Records for the release, The Length Of A Smile is the second release from the Black Country pop-punk band, who released their debut EP Dwell in April 2016. It will be available in both digital & physical formats with a special ‘orange crush’ vinyl pressing limited to just 200 copies available for pre-order now. Recorded in the space of a week at Emeline Studios, Kent and produced by Ian Sadler, the band are confident and excited to release what they say is their most formidable work to date:

“We feel this EP is a big step up for us and compared with debut EP ‘Dwell’ it’s a much more ‘concentrated’ listening experience and has the best writing both musically and lyrically that any of us has ever come up with.  We spent a solid week recording in Whitstable, Kent which was fun. We rented out a caravan to stay in next to the beach on a dodgy holiday park, but had to sneak each other onto the site because the security only thought there were 4 of us were there!” explained Keiran. 

Lyrics:

Occasionally regrettable,
We watched a pile of letters,
Build up on the living room floor,
Cause’ none of us wanted to live here anymore

Your hair is long,
but not as long as,
The list of people,
I left behind

I won’t say goodbye yet,
I didn’t cherish half the time,
I took it for granted,
Were those the best years of my life,
My eyes roll back,
Three years ago today,
I’ve learnt a lot,
About the places I can’t stay

Your hair is long,
but not as long as,
The list of people,
I left behind,
We found solace,
On these student streets,
The places we can’t hide,
Let’s get drunk again,
We’ll call it one last time

One last time,
One last time

We found solace,
On these student streets,
The places we can’t hide,
Let’s get drunk again,
We’ll call it one last time

Before I move back to Coventry,
Into my dad’s spare room and eventually,
I’ll find the place I’m meant to be,
Where the fuck am I meant to be
