Waxahatchee’s New Single “Coast to Coast” Channels Bubblegum & Fatalism

Waxahatchee Coast To Coast Waxahatchees New Single Coast to Coast Channels Bubblegum & Fatalism

My favorite washed-out femme fatale folk singer Waxahatchee has released a new single from her forthcoming album Cerulean Salt and it sounds a little more bubblegum than anything off her previous album American Weekend from last year. Still, “Coast to Coast” strikes the perfect balance between warbling guitars and bright, sunny vocals that Bethany Cosentino created for Best Coast.

Strung out oohs and lingering guitar lines evoke the aimlessness of coastal wanderings, and hint that Katie Crutchfield’s next record will veer into new territory, while staying firmly in her gear of fatalism and sad-eyed imagery. Stream the track below and look for her new album out on Don Giovnani on March 5.
