Luke Atlas met Coleman Trapp a few days after the former made the move from Seattle to Los Angeles in 2014. Working together on educational rap songs for NASA during the day, the two eventually decided to make non-astronomical-related music together on the side. Coast Modern’s debut single, “Hollow Life,” made its way onto the radio almost as soon as it was released on SoundCloud in 2015, as Trapp’s voice makes nearly every line anthemic enough to be stuck in your head for days. Last year brought their debut self-titled album, which mixes breezy electro-pop with inklings of hiphop, indie pop, and psych rock, resulting in 18 beach-infused and summer-approved tracks.
