A shape-shifting Los Angeles-based duo who infuse their breezy, west coast electro-pop with elements of hip-hop, indie rock and psych-pop, Coast Modern is the brainchild of Seattle native Luke Atlas and L.A.-based Coleman Trapp. The pair met in 2013 as struggling songwriters in the crowded Southern California hit-making scene. After two years of of failing to cast their creations into the mainstream, Trapp retreated to Denver, CO to get some perspective and write songs for himself. Eventually the pair both relocated to the City of Angels and Coast Modern was born.
The newly minted duo dropped their first single, Hollow Life, in 2015 and it drew rave reviews and comparisons to artists such as Grouplove, Cage the Elephant, Twenty One pilots and Alt-J.
In 2017, after performing various tour dates with acts like BØRNS and The Temper Trap, they dropped their self-titled album, which included the singles Guru, Hollow Life and Dive.
