COIN: 'UNCANNY VALLEY', AI INFLUENCES AND EXPLORING A NEW SOUND

Watch our interview with COIN frontman, Chase Lawrence!


Nashville-based indie-pop trio COIN recently unveiled their superb fourth studio album, Uncanny Valley. We caught up with frontman Chase Lawrence to chat about the album, their forthcoming tour and so much more!


Inspired by artificial intelligence and the fine line between humanity and technology, having delved into the world present in the 2017 Greg Kohs directed documentary, AlphaGo. The glistening body of work questions what it means to be human, dissecting emotions and lived experiences whilst also exploring what it would be like on the flip side, existing as an AI robot.



Wanting to push against their existing sonic boundaries, Uncanny Valley offers a slight departure from the bands signature indie-pop sounds. With Chapstick's rap-meets-spoken word verses, synth-pop meets dance soundscape and funk-infused influences, COIN have created a genre-bending body of work that is sure to have you grooving along, maybe even pulling out the famous robot dance moves.


The trio are currently on the road, touring alongside Australian band 5 Seconds Of Summer across the UK. COIN will then return to the U.S., perfroming at a number of festivals including The Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, whilst also embarking on their own headline tour.
