Croft & Cotes (Indie/Pop/Folk) - Artist Discovery

Todays Artist Discovery is Indie/Pop/Folk duo, Croft & Cotes. The bands current discography combines showcases a mix of Indie splendour alongside some more chilled Folky tracks. All sprinkled with catchy choruses and appealing harmonies.

The London based 2 piece consists of twin brothers Daniel & Matthew (last name Persell-Thompson) and have been playing music together under the alias 'Croft & Cotes' for a few years now...

London Based Indie/Pop/Folk Duo Croft & Cotes

The pair released their latest EP, 'Space For Sadness', in 2019. The 5 track release provides a pleasant blend of both upbeat and chilled out songs.

Within the first few seconds of the first track, 'Slow Down', you find yourself instantly clicking/tapping along. A melodious lead vocal then rides through the verse, later layered by impressive vocal harmonies as the pre chorus reaches.

Then comes the chorus - with an incredibly catchy melody and well written lyrics, it really does get stuck in your head for days!

Check out the music video, filmed and edited by Delphino, below!

The third track on the EP 'Racing Mind' brings a new energy to the record with nostalgic sounding Indie guitar tones and more catchy vocals.

This followed by piano driven ballad 'You Were Wrong'. A smooth sounding progression is accompanied by an emotion evoking lead vocal and those impressive harmonies we mentioned earlier.
