While everyone has been lazing around during their week off, Alternative band Coast Modern has already gotten busy this spring: the band has released a new single and dropped some exciting news for their listeners.

As fans await the beginning of their new tour, Coat Modern’s new single “Pockets Full of No” dropped on Spotify and iTunes on March 31. The tune features the same upbeat synth pop sound found in their other eight singles, and even features the sound of the money we all wish we had going into this spring.

The lyric “we’ve got what we got, pockets full of no,” can especially apply to Lake Zurich students; not everyone has a summer job at Culver’s or Panera with plenty of spending cash. A lot of us just have “pockets full of no.”

The rest of the duo’s hits are comprised of a combination of vocals that can be likened to those of Cage the Elephant’s Matt Shultz, psychedelic mixes of synth, and thoughtful yet contemporary lyrics.

Since releasing their debut album in 2015, “Hollow Life”, the band has gained momentum mainly on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation. Their dizzying, floaty melodies make up a lot of the station’s Advanced Placement segment, which was introduced to help bring new music to alternative listeners.

Not only will listening to Coast Modern’s new single put you ahead of your friends that are still in their Jimmy Eat World phase, it can also be a great song to zone out to as you try to turn your pockets full of no into pockets full of yes.
Coast Modern managed to release the perfect spring cleaning bop to dance around to with a Swiffer mop, but the new tour and clues about the new album will keep fans, new or old, on the edge of their seats during this upcoming spring.
