West London singer/songwriter Oliver Coates is off to a stunning start with his debut EP. Inspired by the best that Britpop has to offer and raised on the lyrical commentaries of Morrissey and Bob Dylan, Coates has created a wry observation of the darker side of life in modern Britain and blended it with bright Indie melodies and infectious choruses. He’s created his own unique sound, like the dry wit of Jarvis Cocker set to a warm acoustic backdrop, that grows on you with each listen. His upbeat yet gritty satirical songwriting is a must for fans of Jamie T, Frank Turner and Jake Bugg.
Coates‘ debut EP ‘Vol.1’ is released on the 25th September and is well worth a listen.
