- Take Me Out To The Coast
Take Me Out to the Coast, is the latest single taken from ‘Out In the Light’, the debut album from Norwegian-American alt-rockers Waters. Formed in 2010 following the demise of frontman Van Pierszalowski’s former band Port O’Brien, they’ve already mastered the kind of grungy, anthemic rock that should make stadium -fillers like Coldplay shake in their well-heeled, faux-leather boots.
Starting with a relatively simple drum-guitar combo, this song reaches its climax with an emotive gang vocal that echoes the disappointed nostalgia of the lyrics. However, while the opening line of “I was wrong to believe in myself” may not suggest optimism, it’s hard not to find a glimmer of hope in such a stirring, chant-like chorus.
If you like your music rough around the edges, but with a hell of a lot of heart, then Waters might just be the band you’ve been waiting for. Adding a splash of indie sensibility to an otherwise scuzzy, low-fi concoction, these guys have proven with Take Me Out to the Coast that they have the potential to stay afloat for a long while to come.
