The Tanlines are back! Been a long time, but fans of I’m Your Negative will want to pick up Coast to Coast. Alicja’s songwriting covers the gamut—from power pop to (almost) prog rock. John Bonds (drums) and Terrence Bishop (bass) form one hell of a rhythm section. Bishop, in particular, stands out. It’s crucial to have a great bassist in a three piece. The production on this record is unbelievably high—and it actually sounds good. Coast to Coast is a nice return LP for the Tanlines.
