SONGBROKER SONG OF THE DAY : COACH - I HAVE TWO SHADOWS
Coach is a three-piece band from Auckland comprised of Abraham Kunin (guitar/vocals), Jonathan Burgess (double bass/vocals) and Todd Beeby (drums/vocals). Their music references elements of Trinity Roots, My Bloody Valentine and Dirty Three but the sound is wholly their own.
Coach released their full-length album Family Tree in August 2012. Family Tree is a sophisticated and refined collection that strikes the listener immediately with its depth, cohesiveness and kaleidoscopic emotion.
Lead single 'I Have Two Shadows' is a sunny blend of electric guitar and undulating falsetto marking the romantic backdrop for a track reminiscent of Beach House or the Smiths. The bass groove takes this song somewhere more akin to the trip-hop beats of Portishead. Abe Kunin’s vocal has a husky sensuousness that lends itself to the summery yearning of the single.
