UK based Indie Pop trio KOATES have been able to make some pretty major things happen in a relatively short time.  James Coates (Vocals / Guitar), Jojo Macari (Bass / Backing Vocals) and Joe Perkins (Drums) only came together as a band last year – yet since releasing their debut single, “Escalators”, in May of this year the have been able to land support from Steve Lamacq, Radio X and BBC Introducing London – as well as selling out a series of shows at the Sebright Arms, performing a sell-out headline show at The Lexington and landing a performance at The Great Escape as “Best Newcomer.”Most recently, the buzzing band has unleashed their second single, “The Right Place”, produced by Gary Go (Rihanna, Robbie Williams, Take That, The 2 Bears, Juliette Lewis).  Additionally, they have also released an official video for the anthemic Alt-Pop gem that only helps to bring this one to life.  With a sound that they say is like, “the love-child of a menage a trios with Mac Demarco, The Police and Fleetwood Mac,KOATES are able to bring a familiar feel with a new, updated groove.  Over a pumping, dynamic, guitar laden production, KOATES are able to create a memorable tune that can work the world over.  The beautifully shot music video helps listeners get a better look at the groups aesthetic via captivating close ups and energetic performance clips.  While KOATES may just be getting started, I have no doubt they will be making a major impact if they can keep pumping out jams like this.
