Label: Chess Club Records
Released: 29th April 2022
Three EPs in, and Coach Party have definitely graduated from their indie-rock apprenticeship with flying colours.
‘Nothing Is Real’ is five tracks of driven, direct hits – from the raw frustration and righteous anger of ‘FLAG (Feel Like A Girl) to the slightly stalkerish salted saccharine of ‘3 Kisses’.
It’s closing title-track ‘Nothing Is Real’ that really stands out, though. Shining through hazy, shimmering fog, it’s a scuzzy, shoegazey twist on Coach Party’s chosen formula.
As that debut album approaches, it promises exciting things still to come.
