Stream Overcoats' Debut Album 'Young'


Stream Overcoats' Debut Album 'Young' 

(4/21, Arts & Crafts) Via NPR First Listen

"It's thrilling to know that one of the best albums of 2017 is made by two of the best friends you'll ever witness on a stage."
Next week, Overcoats will release their debut album ‘YOUNG’ (4/21, Arts & Crafts), and today, NPR First Listen has the early stream of the record. Bob Boilen called 'YOUNG' "one of the best albums of 2017," saying the album is "driven by ambition and passion."

‘YOUNG’ has earned early praise from the New York Times, who compared Overcoats to the Everly Brothers and dubbed their track “Kai’s Song” an “electronic hymn.” The duo just finished up a run of dates with Maggie Rogers and will embark on a headlining tour next week, kicking off with a sold-out, hometown release show at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade on 4/20, followed by a second show at NYC’s Mercury Lounge on 4/21. Watch Overcoats’ “vibrant harmonies and the bountiful dance parties” (Bob Boilen) during their recent NPR Tiny Desk Concert: http://n.pr/2o37jvj
Co-produced by Nicolas Vernhes (The War On Drugs, Dirty Projectors) and Autre Ne Veut, ‘YOUNG’ is a story about growing up told through the lens of two women who are wise beyond their years. Hana and JJ started Overcoats while they were college roommates and they co-wrote all twelve songs on ‘YOUNG.’ The two were drawn to each other when they first met as teenagers in 2011, finding connection in a love of diverse musical styles, and forging a closeness that verges on sisterhood. Both members of Overcoats describe the first time hearing each other sing as an epiphany: the harmony of their voices leading to personal, individual discovery.
