Los Angeles-based dream pop duo crushed have dropped their (Really Very Brilliant) latest single ‘Coil’ and announced the release of their eagerly-awaited debut EP, ‘extra life’.
Soaked in 90s radio vibes, presented in a way that never feels backwards or tired, ‘Coil’ is the sort of retro-futurist bop that feels both comfortingly familiar and excitingly fresh.
On the new track, the duo’s Shaun Durkan says, “‘Coil’ is about the mixed feelings caused by reflecting on a toxic relationship and wondering if you’ve truly done enough work and are ready to leave it all behind. Nostalgia is dangerous and can make even a really damaging and painful period of life seem beautiful and appealing.”
He adds, “To me personally, it’s about my relationship with drugs and how the highs and lows of active addiction permanently change how you see the world around you. It’s about wondering if you can untether yourself from those skewed memories, see active addiction for what it truly was, and move forward.”
Crushed’s debut EP, ‘extra life’ is set to be released on February 10th.
