Coterie - Cool It Down

Backyard Beats 07/12/2021

Following on from their warmly-received single ‘Good Morning’ (#19 NZ official Hot 40 Singles Chart, ZM’s Locals Only feature); Aotearoa-born, Perth-based quartet COTERIE return with their stellar new dub-tinged cut ‘Cool it Down’. The single is produced by the band themselves at their home studio, and co-produced by Robby De Sa (MAY-A, Gretta Ray, Sahara Beck).

Taking cues from the likes of Ocean Alley, Summer Thieves, Lime Cordiale and Dope Lemon, ‘Cool it Down’ is an explosion of sunshine driven by its groove-infused rhythmic section. Shining with infectious hooks, deft instrumentation and a myriad of charm, the feel-good summer party anthem combines elements of reggae, indie-pop and surf rock to deliver on one of the group’s most stirring and personal offerings to date. 

Front man Tyler Fisher touches on the sentiment within ‘Cool it Down’:

“’We caught it all when we korero, now I’m longing for the sweet shores of Aotearoa’ - this lyric sums it up, Aotearoa is our home but so is West Coast Drive, and as long as we have these coastlines, we know we’re all good!”

The band recently completed a five-date run of Western Australia performing to capacity crowds in Scarborough, Perth, Fremantle, Bunbury, and Margaret River for the West Australian Guitar Fest. As the world begins to open up, COTERIE are in the midst of mapping out a busy 2022 of traversing the globe, including an anticipated return to their home land, New Zealand.
