COIN proudly call themselves a “product of the ’90s”. A borrowed nostalgia for the decade that isn’t uncommon among Nashvillians. COIN hasn’t adopted the detached smugness and angst often associated with ’90s alt acts and contemporary ’90s alt revival acts. They are entirely devoid of ironic, tongue-‐in-‐ cheek rock n’ roll posturing or odes to the joys of slackerdom. Instead, lead singer, keyboardist, and lyricist Chase Lawrence opts for earnest songs about actual human emotions: falling in (and out of) love, worrying about the future, and missing the past. It’s the same brand of wide-‐eyed sincerity found on Pet Sounds—just replace the theremin with a microKORG and the harpsichord with guitarist Joe Memmel’s crisp Telecaster lines.

Their songs are hopeful, but behind the spring reverb and airy synths, there’s subtle regret and even morbidity. They’ve recently released their debut album, recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Sleeper Agent, Eric Church, Emmylou Harris, Little Big Town). The album is guitar driven and sonically mature, but still true to their synth-‐pop sensibilities.

MYZICA, the brainchild of producer Micah Tawlks and singer Isaaca Byrd, is the latest indie pop duo to come out of the Nashville music scene. In the spring of 2014, after a few weeks of tinkering with the bones of some new tracks, Tawlks finished what would become MYZICA’S first song, “Ready Or Not,” in the hollows of his basement during a co-writing session with singer-songwriter Matthew Perryman Jones. He immediately turned to his longtime friend Byrd, with whom he’d always wanted to work as a lead vocalist after meeting her while she was playing bass and singing background vocals for artists like The Bridges and Harrison Hudson. Three weeks later, the newly formed duo had finished three additional songs – including “Wait Just A Minute” – with even more written, and MYZICA was officially born. The band’s debut EP will be out later this summer.
