Coastal are Aaron Hetherington and Jonathan Fletcher. Hailing from Leeds in the United Kingdom, the duo’s journey has taken them from fronting a Hardcore inspired metal band to now taking a leap into the 80s synthwave scene.
Opening softly, Kyoto is soaked with layer upon layer of late night ambience. The Leeds based duo invited fellow Aztec Records artist Oblique to provide guest vocals to the track. The gentle vocals merge perfectly and together tell the story of living your life in the moment, full of spontaneous adventure, but doing it all with someone you love.
Featuring a slick saxophone section, Kyoto paints an atmospheric landscape of serene, breathtaking mountains that offer brief escapism from the busy, non-stop lives everyone has.
Kyoto is Coastal’s third entry into the Synthwave scene, part of their full length debut album titled ‘Memories’ due for release in the back end of 2021.
