Formed in Pheonix, Arizona back in 2012, The Holy Coast came together to create electronic shoegaze soundscapes. Successful in doing so, the band quickly began to gain momentum by sharing stages with artists like Slow Magic and Superhumanoids,
Come January 2014, the threesome recorded five solid tracks to formulate what is now referred to as The Holy Coast EP. Though not yet released in full, we're happy to present the lead tune, "The Highest Love".
The track seems to exemplify a common ground between the EP's contents. Keith Walker, Brett Davis, and Braden McCall manage to create a sound that is layered and therefore has both electronic and acoustic depth. Catching the attention of Andy Rourke of The Smiths, "The Highest Love" will be remixed as a part of Rourke's project Jetlag NYC. You wouldn't be surprised to know that the band was totally thrilled. The outcome, as described by The Holy Coast, proves to be a "haunting nod to the Manchester hay days of the Hacienda".
Keep your ears peeled for the release of the whole The Holy Coast EP.
