Nashville pop/rock band COIN has released their new single “Simple Romance” today. Watch the David O’Donohue directed video now below. “Simple Romance” is produced by Mark Foster and Isom Innis (Foster the People) and will be featured on band’s forthcoming third studio album on Columbia Records.
“About a year ago, we started writing for our new album. We were so tired from touring & so sick of our approach to writing. We just wanted to do something different. In my experience, that’s when the most interesting songs come out… almost out of necessity,” Chase Lawrence said. “Our drummer, Ryan, played an idea in garage band. We all crammed in a small studio space & played together in a way we hadn’t in years… The song shook out in a few hours. Over time, it morphed & evolved. Mark Foster added a new bass line, Isom Innis *simplified* some parts. And, it hit me. We often don’t realize how much work it really takes. Love isn’t as simple as a feeling. It takes time, space, thought, decision and acceptance. At the time, I was almost romanticizing the idea of romance itself. Love is easy, but staying in love is an art.”
“Simple Romance” follows the success of the band’s sophomore album, How Will You Know If You Never Try. The 11-track album features COIN’s widely-popular songs “I Don’t Wanna Dance,” Alternative Radio hit “Talk Too Much,” and stripped-down ballad “Malibu 1992.”
The quartet, known for their energetic and exciting live performances, will play a few select shows this month. See below for the full list of U.S. tour dates.
