Existential rumination is the order of the day on superb Isle of Wight indie pop-punks Coach Party’s latest release. Rather than dress up their existence-related observation in metaphor and allegory, the foursome come straight out asking ‘What’s the point in life’ and seem rather content to not have any answers.
Strong bass and ferocious drums make way for vocalist Jess Eastwood’s contentedly relaxed espousals (“I’ll do what I want, when I want, yeah I’ll do it, everything’s fine, I’ll get round to it”) to a playful melody and chirping guitar with a vivacious chorus that makes the potentially doom-laden portent of “We’re all gonna die. What’s the point in life, if we all die?” sound alarmingly life-affirming.
Coach Party’s debut album is due out on 8th September via Chess Club records. You can pre-order it on all of the snazzy LP bundles right now. ‘What’s The Point In Life’ is the fourth single to be taken from the album so far, along with ‘Born Leader’, ‘All I Wanna Do Is Hate’ and ‘Micro Aggression’.
