‘Vodka Smile’ is Black Coast’s latest offering off their album ‘Outworld’ which is set to be released later in the year. A heavier, faster paced song compared to ‘Paradise’, which was the bands first single off the album, but still having that grungey vibe Black Coast have again produced a belter of a tune. This is definitely a band to get behind and although their sound has grown and matured they have a hell of a fine back catalogue of tracks that you really need to check out.
‘Vodka Smile’ explores a sentiment perhaps many can relate to, after vocalist Charlie Hewitt found himself coming to a personal realisation during the writing process of this song, saying that “Originally the song was written lyrically as a party song, that feeling of being so mangled you have no idea what’s going on. l always wanted a song like this – when l was in that frame of mind. It still scares me that l was so far gone and not accepting life itself for so long, l love the song don’t get me wrong but it takes me back to that lost feeling when we play it.“
Nuclear Blast’s Distribution arm ‘Blood Blast’ and Capital Artist Management (Yours Truly, Eat Your Heart Out, Between You & Me) have gotten behind the band, as have media around the world.
In Australia alone, the band have been spun on triple j’s Short Fast Loud, The Faction Radio on rotation and featured on Blunt Mag, Hysteria Mag, Wall of Sound, Heavy Mag, Recurrent Verse and more.
