Coast Modern is an American indie pop duo based in Los Angeles, California, known for their 2015 single "Hollow Life." The duo consists of Luke Atlas and Coleman Trapp. When Los Angeles-based duo Coast Modern first met at a friend's studio in 2014, the guys (Coleman Trapp and Luke Atlas) never thought they'd become a band. Trapp didn't set out to be a singer, as he'd been producing hip-hop music, and Atlas was doing the same in the alternative genre. But then a gig with NASA changed everything.At the time, NASA was looking to improve science and tech engineering and math jobs in the future, so they enlisted Trapp and Atlas to create educational rap songs for middle school kids. And although the NASA experience didn't necessarily influence their sound, Atlas says it put their collaborative skills to the test.
"It was definitely a challenging project to incorporate Newtonian physics into hip-hop beats," he tells Billboard. "After that we were like, if we can handle something as weird and hard as this, we can handle writing normal songs."
But despite no longer writing space-related rhymes, Coast Modern's path to becoming a band was just as unconventional as their first project. In fact, Atlas and Trapp weren't even intending on making anything together – but after posting some songs online in the midst of writing for other people, the folks at 300 Entertainment/+1 Records caught wind, and next thing they knew they had a record deal.
Since signing with +1 Records in 2015, Trapp and Atlas have put out 7 singles, and today (July 28), they release their eclectic, surf-rock debut album, Coast Modern. And while most of the LP's 18 songs have been ready for the last year, the Coast Modern guys are still letting it sink in that they're now a band making music for a living instead of remaining behind the scenes.
"It feels like we got swept up in something larger than ourselves, almost. We'd never even planned to form a band," Atlas says. "We formed a vision of creating a project where we just made whatever kind of music we wanted without any kind of restrictions – so to be here now, I don't know how it happened. We're surfing the best kind of wave."
