Coastgaard may not quite be a surf-rock band, but the band definitely has that beachy vibe. Growing from the ashes of the band Sons Of Sons and honing a style inspired by the likes of The Beach Boys, David Bowie, and The Ventures, as much as alt rock from Pavement, The Pixies, and Neutral Milk Hotel, the Brooklyn-based five-piece have managed to find a take on super-catchy pop that feels both familiar and new. Here, they play some tunes and share the story of the whiskey-fueled inspiration for their Scandinavian-leaning moniker.
Featured song: “Ocean Blue”
