Meet KOATS and their latest single ‘I’ll Take That Dare (feat. Cory Wong)’. Long, poofy hair. iPods and flip phones. Printing out guitar tabs. Jamming with friends in the basement. Driving around, windows down, blasting the latest Weezer and The Strokes albums.
KOATS’s new offering is vintage, yet modern. Nostalgic, yet fresh. Even though the track is about a very universal topic, the way that band brought it to life makes it unusual. It’s not just your regular break-up song with beautiful melodies and soothing vocal lines. KOATS takes you for a break-up 10k run in their own upbeat angry tempo, at moments bringing vibes of shanties sung by the sea wolves.
