Upon hearing the name Coat Check Girl, you may think of Jayma Mays‘ character on that particular episode of How I Met Your Mother, but starting today you may also think of infectious, alt-rock music with a ska tinge. The Los Angeles band has released a music video for their new single “Audience of None,” produced by Latin Grammy Award winning producer Rodolfo “Rudy” Pagliuca. Although the polished track has an upbeat vibe, vocalist Andre Rodriguez says the lyrics are a bit of a contrast. WATCH IT HERE
“This is the most personal song I have ever written,” says Rodriguez. “It was written about suicide and depression. The title ‘Audience of None’ refers to the fact that sometimes, for some people, no one’s there listening even when they’re screaming for help.“
A dreamy synth arrangement (provided by Chapis Lasca) gives the bouncy track a bit of grounding, while Rodriguez hammers away at the hook with an almost Rob Thomas flair. “Audience of None” is available now on iTunes and Spotify.
