Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Coastline - Hollow Coves
Brisbane, Australia's Hollow Cove is an indie folk band who really have a very simple, focused, acoustic sound, as evidenced by "Coastline", the first track on EP Wanderlust (released on February 3rd). "Coastline" is such a beautifully spare song, that uses harmonic vocals, a pair of acoustic guitars, a single drum, and cymbal to deliver an incredibly peaceful song perfect for a quiet day outside. I know this will be making it's way onto a lot of my winter "relaxing hike" playlists....
The original (album) version is excellent, but there is something so freeing about the less-produced, acoustic version, that I felt that would be the one to share along to you:
Honestly, you cannot go wrong with either version, and if you are a fan of chill, indie folk, you really do owe it to yourself to give Wanderlust a listen to get a sense of Hollow Cove's range of sound.
I still make playlists for Tuesday Tunes/Daily Song Drop, and the latest one we have released is our Apple Music Playlist for the Top 20 Songs of 2016
As I said before, you can expect a Dec/Jan super playlist tomorrow.
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
