Indie rock trio Coyote Choir have just released the latest installments in their lyric video series promoting tracks from their debut album, Vol. 1. The mannequin themed videos for “Keep Moving On” and “Rainbows” premiered exclusively on ComeHereFloyd and Noisetrade.com respectively. ComeHereFloyd called “Keep Moving On” “an uplifting anthem [that] holds our hands to a place of positivity and new possibilities.” Fans can watch the lyric video here.
In addition to a first look at the “Rainbows” video, the band is also offering an exclusive download on NoiseTrade.com of four Vol. 1 album tracks for a limited time. Fans can watch the video and get the exclusive 4 song EP on the band’s artist page here.
Both “Rainbows” and “Keep Moving On” will be featured on the band’s debut album, Vol. 1, which drops this Friday, 11.2. The album is a spirited mix of indie rock, americana, and folk, blending the spirit of The War on Drugs and Ryan Adams with the nostalgic 80’s sheen of acts like Dire Straits and Traveling Wilburys.
“Keep the heart high.” For Coyote Choir, this is less a mission statement than it is a summary of their experience. Brothers Jason and Paul Watkins (vocals and bass respectively) and drummer Mathew Linton bonded over a mutual case of musical burnout. Their collective journey of reclaiming the joy results in their debut, Volume 1. It is a sound both new and familiar—combining smart pop songcraft with gorgeous soundscapes. Songs like “Awakenings,” “Rainbows,” and “Sing!” declare the arrival of a new spirit of creation, and invite the listener to take back their joy from whatever or whoever stole it.
