Lo-fi bedroom-pop artist This Coast Bias has released his latest single '4solong'.
The track is an infectious and cinematic offering which features splashes of disco amongst moody synths, hushed vocals and a captivating chorus which oozes with nostalgia. The project was inspired by 'a hefty diet of disco and funk from my mom and rock from my dad" says the artist, and is a culmination of modern production meets throwback energy. '4solong' pulls influence from his childhood repertoire and mixes in elements of modern electronic production.
TCB's self-branded 'breakup pop' theme is powerfully poignant throughout all of his music and in the new single, a moving tempo lays the foundation for his confessional words. With an anthemic driven chorus, the bouncy track shimmers in all of its 80's glory with electric synths and pushing percussion.
On the single TCB shares,
"'4solong' is a song about finally getting with that person you’ve always wanted to have in your life. I usually write songs about breakups or longing, but this one feels more bubbly than that. It’s about leaving doubts behind and just going for it. It’s a lean-out-the-window-with-a-bubblegum-snow-cone kind of track that I pictured playing at the tail end of a John Hughes movie, like when Bender throws up his fist at the end of The Breakfast Club. I hope you enjoy it, because I loved creating it!”
