Following the announcement of their new album ‘Uncanny Valley’ out on March 25th via 10K Projects, US gold-certified alternative pop phenomenon COIN unveil today their new single ‘Brad Pitt’, a deceptively breezy piece of ear candy embedded with questions of eternal life and perpetual youth. Alongside this, the band will join 5 Seconds of Summer’s Arena Tour in the UK this spring, including a stop at the OVO Arena Wembley.
‘‘Brad Pitt’ was definitely one of the songs that felt uncomfortable at first,” says Joe Memmel (guitar), noting that the track features accordion alongside its West Coast hip-hop beat. ‘But then we just kept massaging and trying different things, and eventually what seemed risky turned into something that felt so right’ he adds.
Co-produced by the band and Julian Bunetta (One Direction, Maroon 5), Uncanny Valley fully embodies a forward-thinking and kaleidoscopic sonic palette. The full fourth-length from COIN is born from intense fascination with the infinite possibilities and dangers of AI, and the ever-blurring boundary between humanity and technology.
“The idea was to take the elements of classic rock—the organic instrumentation and energy of drums and guitar and bass—then put all that through a very hi-fi and modern filter,” says COIN vocalist/keyboardist Chase Lawrence. “We wanted to make people feel like they’ve opened a door to the future, and heard a combination of sounds they weren’t supposed to hear yet”.
Beyond the new track, Uncanny Valley will also feature the recently released, ‘I Think I Met You In A Dream’, ‘Cutie’ and ‘Chapstick’, which has amassed over 11.5 million streams, is currently #1 at AAA and Top 15 Alternative Radio and has now been #1 on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation Alt18 Countdown for six weeks. Garnering praise across the board, the song was hailed by Elton John on his Rocket Hour Radio Show (“I can promise you’ll be hearing more!”), Jack Saunders on BBC Radio 1 (‘One of my favourite things we’re playing here… SO SICK”), Billboard and was added to The Independent ‘Now Hear This’ playlist.
COIN are vocalist/keyboardist Chase Lawrence, guitarist Joe Memmel and drummer Ryan Winnen. Ending 2021 with a sold-out 26-city North American tour, an album on the way, touring with 5 Seconds of Summer this spring, before hitting the road for a slew of festival performances including Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, Forecastle and Shaky Knees, 2022 is set to be a landmark year for the Nashville-based indie-pop trio.
Uncanny Valley tracklist:
Take A Picture
I Think I Met You In A Dream
Take The Stairs
Watering A Dead Flower
Plug Me In
COIN present a new picture for alternative pop. The Nashville triumvirate have impressively generated over 1 billion streams and earned a gold certification for their 2017 breakthrough anthem “Talk Too Much.” In between releasing albums such as COIN , How Will You Know If You Never Try , and Dreamland , they’ve toured alongside everyone from The 1975 to Young The Giant and earned widespread acclaim from Entertainment Weekly, Teen Vogue, Billboard and many more.
Signing to 10K Projects/Homemade Projects last fall, the trio kicked off their next chapter with their balmy bop “Chapstick.” Amassing over 8.5 million streams and continuing to rise up the charts at both AAA and Alternative Radio, the single was followed by a sold-out 26-city headlining North American tour. Diving into 2022, COIN announced that they will be joining 5 Seconds of Summer on their UK Arena Tour this spring, as well as a slew of festival performances including Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Forecastle and Shaky Knees, with more to be announced. Now, the alt-pop trio now prepares for the release of their upcoming album, Uncanny Valley, out March 25th.
