Generally speaking, Coastlands plays traditional post rock. Nevertheless, their music has flavor, dynamic and consistence, as the sound keeps looking to its friendly, accessible and radiant atmosphere, pushing its harmonies longer, until its boundaries feel dry, then it’s harmonious and hyperbolic tenacity instills a flexible diagram of discreet proverbial tonalities over its rhythmic possibilities, that provides a serene outlook to the sensible restlessness hidden in each note. The calmer pace of the harmonies are relaxing and elegant, as the songs evolve to reach a sophisticated, but prohibitively dense tenure of ambivalent mordacity, where the soul of its content becomes a more sophisticated version of its lenient, soft, fragrant shape.
With a subtle degree of originality, easily identifiable on the calmly expanded sonorous tissue of their dimensional melodies, there is a natural vitality and grace on the style of Coastlands, that makes impossible not to like them. Although at first an inattentive listener may be bored – even qualifying their sound as generic –, you just need to dive a little further, a little deeper, to be completely submerged by the iridescent cordiality and splendor of their music. The calmness is not only a structural convenience, it’s a profoundly intuitive and genuine sentimental device, that emerges from the soul of their creative musical essence.
The Further Still is like a soft labyrinth, that you enter without any fear. You don’t know if you’re going to leave it, but certainly you will discover a few things about yourself in the process. A proverbially graceful and marvelous sonorous therapy, this amazing album is an authentic and unequivocally singular pearl of the genre. Undoubtedly, has all the necessary qualities – perfectly combined altogether – to make history.
