After much anticipation, local London trio KOATES have released an energetic second single - ‘The Right Place’ - to follow a well-received debut.
Lead vocalist and guitarist James Coates, bassist JoJo Macari and drummer Joe Perkins have seen a lot of success since they first came together last year, with their debut single ‘Escalators’ catching the attention of many at its release in May. The trio played Best Newcomer at The Great Escape festival shortly after and continued with a massively successful summer, hosting a residency at the Sebright Arms.
With relatable lyrics like ‘talk a little, live a little, love a little, work it out’, ‘The Right Place’ debates the back-and-forth nature of a relationship turned toxic. The catchy riffs, tight rhythm and dynamic tenor vocals make the alt-pop tune a strong and promising follow up to a majorly successful start.
KOATES will be playing their largest headliner to date - a sellout at The Lexington on Friday, 16 November.
