Not long after forming, Coast took out top prize in the 2008 Eastern Bay Battle of the Bands, judged by
Kora, and then Auckland's Rock to the Top competition in 2009. With these early achievements, it's not
surprising that the young band's potential came to the attention of Loop's Mikee Tucker (TrinityRoots, The
Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties), who quickly joined forces with them.
Encouraged by their success, and driven
forward by their ties to each other as both bros and bandmates, Coast have developed their deep and complex sound, captured on their self-titled debut release.
