“Neat, refined pop music that comes with a dose of indie in its veins.”
Clash Magazine (UK)
“COTERIE are a breath of fresh air.”
Life Without Andy (AUS)
Following on from their warmly received single Good Morning Perth-based quartet COTERIE return with their stellar new dub-tinged cut Cool It Down – produced by the band themselves at their home studio, and co-produced by Robby De Sa (MAY-A, Gretta Ray, Sahara Beck) at Ralph Street Studios, Alexandria NSW.
Taking cues from the likes of Ocean Alley, Lime Cordiale and Dope Lemon, Cool It Down is an explosion of sunshine driven by its groove-infused rhythmic section. Shining with infectious hooks, deft instrumentation and a myriad of charm, the feel-good summer party anthem combines elements of reggae, indie-pop and surf rock to deliver on one of the group’s most stirring and personal offerings to date.
“’We caught it all when we korero, now I’m longing for the sweet shores of Aotearoa’ – this lyric sums it up, Aotearoa is our home but so is West Coast Drive, and as long as we have these coastlines, we know we’re all good!” explains frontman Tyler Fisher.
Alongside the single is the eye-catching accompanying music video – filmed, directed and edited by Sarah Haleem. Shot across various locations in Western Australia, featuring live footage from their previous tours, along with candid shots of the group hanging out together on the West Coast Drive, the clip is a graceful tribute to their laidback lifestyle. “The concept of this entire video was to give people a glimpse into our lives,” continues Tyler. “Where we live, the culture, the things we love! You’ll see the waters of West Coast Drive, the moments from our shows on tour and the shots of us writing, driving and chilling.”
Previous tracks have been supported by the likes of triple j, triple j Unearthed, Double J, ABC Radio Australia, Hit Network, Coles Radio, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Clash Magazine (UK), NME, Pilerats, Life Without Andy, Music Feeds, Tone Deaf, 3RRR, 4ZZZ, SYN FM, RTR FM, Radio Adelaide, Three D Radio, Bay FM, The Hits (NZ), ZM (NZ), World FM (NZ), Q97 (NZ), Mai FM (NZ), Sun FM (NZ), KICK (NZ) and The Station (NZ).
The band recently completed a five-date run of Western Australia performing to capacity crowds in Scarborough, Perth, Fremantle, Bunbury, and Margaret River for the West Australian Guitar Fest. As the world begins to open up, COTERIE are in the midst of mapping out a busy 2022 of traversing the country and the globe.
