Coates Short Info

Inspired by a dystopian society, Coates’ brand new track “Posing in the Dark” tells the story of a struggling actor that turns to a life on the “blue screen” out of a desperation to make ends meet. Moreover, in an age of the celebrity lyrics such as “cast me out in the lowest rag” hint at its fickle nature, all the while veiled in irony against the backdrop of the story.

Musically Singer/Songwriter Coates has been likened to “a gritty aJohnny Marr having a fight with a synth”. Inspired by indie pop music from the 80’s but with a heavier and grittier twist Coates brings his favourite musical era to the modern age. In 2016, he played a string of stripped back house shows, including his own, where he openly invited his Twitter followers round to his own home for a gig. At these packed out shows he asked the attendees to pick his next four singles for 2017. True to his word Coates picked the most 4 requested tracks, starting here, with “Posing in the Dark”.
