Long For The Coast
Honest, endearing, and fiercely hopeful, Totnes-via-Bristol-based indie-folk duo Long For The Coast believes that music is community; they sing stories about social change, and close friends lost and found. Jamie and Sophie Gould are known for their close-knit harmonies, straight-to-the-heart lyrics and genteel fingerpicked guitar.
Revolution Starts at Home is a collection of songs inspired by the human experience, spiritual exploration and the need we all share for authentic connection. The album’s introspective narrative was ignited by the notion that if you want to change the world, you’ve got to start with yourself. The songs and music will chime with fans of Ben Howard, The Dead Tongues, This Is The Kit, Pinegrove and Sufjan Stevens.
They’ll be appearing here as a full band with Simon Walker on Bass, ’cello and backing vocals, and Jake Spencer on drums.
