OVERCOATS ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM ‘YOUNG,’ PRODUCED BY NICOLAS VERNHES AND AUTRE NE VEUT, OUT APRIL 21 ON ARTS & CRAFTS
NPR’S ALL SONGS CONSIDERED PREMIERES LEAD SINGLE “HOLD ME CLOSE”, LISTEN HERE:
On April 21, Arts & Crafts will release ‘YOUNG,’ the debut album from New York-based duo Overcoats. Co-produced by Nicolas Vernhes (The War On Drugs, Dirty Projectors) and Autre Ne Veut, ‘YOUNG’ is a story about growing up told through the lens of two women who are wise beyond their years. The lead single “Hold Me Close” deals with the complexities of love set to a backdrop of lush electronic beats and garnished with seamlessly intertwining harmonies. NPR’s All Songs Considered says the song “unfolds with disarming intricacy,” and praises the “the splendor of its deliberate harmony”.

NPR Music also named Overcoats one of its favorite discoveries at SXSW last year, and the duo ranked #3 on NPR’s Listeners Poll of favorite new artists of 2016. One such listener hailed Overcoats for "The chills they give me; the fact that I can't look away when they perform; their complex and irresistible harmonies; the vulnerability to their words and the dance-y beats they put behind them."
Overcoats is comprised of former college roommates Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell, who co-wrote all twelve songs on ‘YOUNG.’ The two were drawn to each other when they first met as teenagers in 2011, finding connection in a love of diverse musical styles, and forging a closeness that verges on sisterhood. Both members of Overcoats describe the first time hearing each other sing as an epiphany: the harmony of their voices leading to personal, individual discovery.
‘YOUNG’ weaves a tapestry of crystalline vocals with soaring synths and rich bass lines. From the subdued introspection of “Kai’s Song” to the thumping two-step and club-ready brass of “Leave The Light On”, ‘YOUNG’ showcases a striking range for the duo. While their seamless vocal interplay and contemplative lyrics remain at the core of their sound, ‘YOUNG’ is also rich with experimentation and sonic surprises.
This spring, Overcoats will play select dates opening for Tennis before heading out on a headlining tour later this year. Full itinerary below.
