Coast Modern debuted with "Hollow Life" and followed it up with "Animals" both jaunty, summery songs with lyrics that go deeper than you might think on first lesson.

The Los Angeles duo's new single is "The Way It Was," and this time they introduce a surprising electronic element towards the end alongside their usual pop/rock blend. 

"With so many songs about 'better times,' we thought there'd be no better time to write a song about the wetter times—the lush rainforest of the present. In such a turbulent era, it's easy to get stuck in the quicksand of nostalgia or tangled in vines of worry. Come on this jungle cruise with us as we explore the wonders of now...because we all know it's never gonna go back to the way it was."

Make sure you stick around past the three minute mark as you listen to the new track below.
