Indie pop band Coastgaard specializes in atmospheric and cinematic pop music, underpinned with surf guitar sounds from the '60s (The Ventures). Two members of the group come from a film background, with Matt Miller (guitar, lead vocals), Sean Glassman (guitar, vocals, keys) both working in film and video editing. Meanwhile, Paolo Codega (bass, vocals) and Brian D’Alessandro (drums, vocals, keys) are both scientists with the former being a neuroscientist and the latter a statistician. This melding of art and science pays dividends in the unique sound of the group as they use pop tropes to explore time and space in music. Coastgaard's new album, Devil on the Balcony, is out now and today the band is sharing the video for their latest single "A Well Adjusted Man", a tune that relies heavily on the rhythms and moods of surf rock in how it plays with the idea of rolling waves.
