We caught up with COIN at Hangout Fest, the last time we talked to the band was in February, so we were stoked to see the guys playing in Gulf Shores. If you haven’t noticed, the band has been gaining a lot of traction.
I’ve said before that Hangout Fest is one of my favorite festivals. I love the beach vibe, the billions of bros and scantily clad women. Okay, maybe not so much the bros, but the setting is so lovely and I LIVE for long road trips down the Gulf Coast.
Fresh off their new EP release, I.L.Y., and opening slot for COIN, we talk to Anderson College’s very own, The Wldlfe. There may not be a song I listened to more than “Text Me?” last year, so I am excited to introduce you all to the Indianapolis quartet. Jansen Hogan spoke with me about the band, the new EP, and 2017.
COIN is an indie pop band that formed in 2012 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. Band members Chase Lawrence, synth and vocals, Joe Memmel, guitar and vocals, Ryan Winnen, drums, and Zachary Dyke, bass, make up the quartet. COIN released their first self-titled album back in 2015, with the song “Run” as a breakaway hit. With their recent hit release “Talk Too Much” charting and even holding down the #1 spot on Alt-Nation for some time, COIN is poised for a huge 2017. I talked with lead singer Chase Lawrence about the things to come, upcoming shows, and the new album.
