Flood Coats emerge into the air on "Billowing Open"

The dreamy opulence of Flood Coats is on a league of its own when pairing it against today's electronic offerings. Theirs is more in tune with the bedroom recorders of this early decade (think of acts like M83, Teen Daze and Sun Airway), where the focus lies in providing a more headphone-enriching night-in than an infectious banger. And "Billowing Open" is a marvelous journey, where the duo of Joel P West and Darla Hawn evoke a yearning for peace of mind through rippling patterns and soft, yet penetrating harmonies. It has a pleasantly hazy groove with a soft rock finish that ascends and ascends until it gets lost in the clouds.

"Billowing Open" is the leading track off of the duo's upcoming debut full-length Vaquita, which is out on July 28 via Hey Amigo Recording Co. - Juan Rodríguez
