Only five years into their journey together as musicians, Austin rock outfit Coattails has already shown immense talent through their first album and unapologetic drive in the local music scene. Toss some impressive songwriting skills in the mix and you’ve got a few great reasons why Coattails has opened for the likes of Israel Nash and even Blue Öyster Cult.
The latest step in this quartet’s musical maturation is their six-song EP Imaginary Friends, a record that alternates between pleasant, heartbreaking and just plain badass! Coattails joined us in Studio 1A this past Tuesday and celebrated their EP release show last night at Empire Control Room. If you’re around Fort Worth tomorrow night, they’re playing at Lola’s Trailer Park, otherwise wind up for the weekend with the lead single from Imaginary Friends, “Clocks & Knives”!
