Escape back to life pre-pandemic with bad tuner’s new video for his single ‘Coast’. Seamlessly threading footage of the last show before lockdown, flashing lights and dancing crowds feel both energising simultaneously. The camera quality echoes that of home footage and brings a rather vintage feel to the music video, as if we are revisiting memories dear to us. There is no doubt that it makes us yearnful for those freeing nights out again.
A soft yet hypnotic beat carries this chill house track through as vocals from Sofia Luna serenade our ears. Sofia is a visual artist whose connection with bad tuner led to her vocal debut in ‘Coast’. Sending her a poem in English, Sofia translated it into French and her softly spoken vocals were the perfect match for this subdued electronic piece. The authentic relationship between the two is evident in the perfectly complemented composition and vocals.
This single is an ode to the Brooklyn music scene, whose hazy summer vibes have been temporarily put on pause. Playing into nostalgia and the very core of Brooklyn, bad tuner’s ethereal track of pulsating beats and tropical melodies is perfectly matched with the Brooklyn music video. The close ups of audience members singing along is a reminder that for bad tuner, their music will always be rooted in their geographical origins and carried within the hearts of their fans. Providing listeners with nearly four minutes of unfaltering rhythm, we can relive the soul and intimacy of Brooklyn house music.
The gorgeous, sunny beat of ‘Coast’ is an instant dance hit, giving us the excuse to let go of current worries and transport ourselves to the sandy beaches or those sweaty, cathartic nights out.
