Coastal are Aaron Hetherington and Jonathan Fletcher. From the north of England, the duo’s journey has taken them from fronting a Hardcore inspired metal band to now taking a leap into the 80s synthwave scene. Taking inspiration from their past exploits to make the genre their own.
Last Sundown is about life starting over again after years of struggling to save failing relationships; realising that what you had wasn’t what you thought it ever was. Nostalgic synths and catchy vocals combine to tell a story of someone sitting alone, watching the sunset as the tide comes in; contemplating would could have been and what is to come.
Last Sundown is Coastal’s fourth release, which will form part of their full length debut album titled ‘Memories’ due for release in the back end of 2021.
Architecture and Morality is the third studio album by electronic pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary, UMC will be re-releasing the 3 aforementioned singles in addition to unreleased demos, studio sessions and live performances of tracks from the album.
"OMD - Architecture & Morality (Singles - 40th Anniversary)" is out Friday, 15th October 2021 on UMC/Virgin and available for pre-order now.
