Nashville pop rockers COIN concluded their Winter 2019 North American headline tour with their biggest headline show to date at Los Angeles' The Wiltern on March 1.
Frontman Chase Lawrence gleefully exclaimed mid-show in astonishment, "We were playing the Troubadour not too long ago and now we're here at the Wiltern." The band formed in 2012 and has gained a loyal fan following through the years. It's a no-brainer why the band has been gaining popularity. Their songs are filled with infectious beats and melodic tunes. The band makes music that you just want to dance to. Appropriately enough, the band opened the night with the upbeat synth song “I Don’t Wanna Dance” which of course made the entire venue jump up and dance.
COIN is currently composed of Chase Lawrence (vocals/keys), Joe Memmel (guitar/vocals) and Ryan Winnen (drums). The core members of the group met at Belmont University and gained the attention of Columbia Records after the release their single “Run.” Through Columbia, the band has released two full-length albums and have been busy touring and playing festivals around the world. If you are looking for a fun indie rock/pop band to check out, COIN is on top of my list of recommendations. The guys rocked the Wiltern delivering a huge 17 song set list of their best hits including “Hannah” and “Talk Too Much.”
The crowd absolutely loved the band, singing along with almost ever tune and cheering for more after each one ended. I even witnessed multiple people dancing like if no one was watching them in the back of the venue. The band has managed to create songs that relate to their young audience and also get stuck in their head thanks to their fun choruses. Not only is the music great but they’re also fantastic musicians. The band would showcase their talents by ending each song with bang. Lawerence, especially, is a captivating frontman. He never stood still, alternating between singing, playing the keyboards and hyping up the crowd.
The band isn't done touring. They are hitting the road this summer with Young The Giant and Fitz and The Tantrums. They’re also working towards their third album scheduled to debut in the spring. For more, visit thisiscoin.com
