Coasting are less then a month old.

Their first show is with Ducktails, Alex Bleeker, Best Coast and others next Wednesday. They're a duo of two ladies, one a member of Dream Diary, the other former member of the New Zealand band Coolies.

Their music is full and driving without any dead weight, like riding a tsunami that only wants to have fun, none of that drowning people stuff.

They explained to me (in the third person, no less), that “Madison [of Dream Diary] had some jams she had been jamming solo.” While working a show together, they thought, “Hey, we should start a band!” They also thought we should know: “Fiona recorded with a sprained ligament in her ankle.”
