After releasing their single Chapstick in late 2021 and their single Cutie in late January, COIN is back with a new single release, “I Think I Met You In A Dream.”
The song starts out with an eerie “Good morning user” but breaks into a classic COIN beat- groovy and bright. This song makes us feel like we’re on a beach on a summer day. Filled with warmth, it makes for the perfect low-key love song. Who wouldn’t want this song sent to them by someone they’re crushing for?
Three days before releasing “I Think I Met You In A Dream,” COIN announced their fifth full-length album, Uncanny Valley.
It’s out on March 25, which cannot come soon enough. We’re eager to see what this new era of COIN brings. They posted a teaser video on their Instagram and it had a lot of similarities to the show Black Mirror. It displayed a stomach-turning reality on how much technology is taking a precedence in our lives; how all-consuming it can be.
COIN was formed in 2012 at Belmont University in Nashville and consists of Chase Lawrence (lead vocals, synthesizers), Ryan Winnen (drums), and Joe Memmel (lead guitar, backing vocals). Their first full length album, COIN, was released in 2015. Following the release of their debut album, they released their hit single, “Talk Too Much,” which was eventually on their second album, How Will You Know If You Never Try, released in 2017. Just before the COVID-19 pandemic began, they released their third album, Dreamland.
During the pandemic, they released three sets of EP’s consisting of four songs each. It started with “Indigo Violet”, then became Green Blue + Indigo Violet, and ended in Rainbow Mixtape. After releasing Rainbow Mixtape they went on their 2021 US Tour which had thirty two dates. They’re set to tour with 5 Seconds of Summer starting in April. They’ll be heading to the United Kingdom and Ireland. Following the tour, they will appear at several festivals in the US, including the Shaky Knees Festival and Bonnaroo.
It’s been a busy last couple of years for the band and we can’t wait to be here for their new era. You can pre-save Uncanny Valley here.
