Check out this video from The Coasts for 'No One's Listening'

  • The Coasts recently released a new single.

Little Rock- and Lebanon, Ohio-based rock band The Coasts (perhaps you caught them at this year's Times Musicians Showcase) have a new song and accompanying video out this week.

"No One's Listening" was recorded up in New York at a place called Wreckroom, which is actor Adrian Grenier's home studio/label/hangout space thingy.

This summer, The Coasts won Wreckroom's Battle of the Bands, which meant they got to go up there and record a song and shoot a video.

Grenier wrote that "The Coasts conjure notes of Fleet Foxes, Dr. Dog, and Weezer to bridge a gap between aged Americana and emerging folk. These guys are winners — they not only won our Battle of the Bands, but they won us over with a killer tune. I hope they come back for more."

Noice! You can watch the video after the jump.

The Coasts are sort of like that one long-distance couple you knew right after college who somehow made it work despite the miles separating them.

Just as you're tsk-tsking, like, "Man, they'll never be able to keep this up," they're all, "Hey, in two weeks we're leaving on a super awesome trip where we're gonna backpack all over Vietnam and Cambodia for six months and further solidify our odds-defying commitment to one another" and then you're like, "Dang, they're really in this for the long haul."

Only instead of a trip to Southeast Asia, they're releasing a new five-song EP called "Santa Fe" in December. Here's the cover art, by notable Little Rock artist Matt Owen, he of the widely praised minimalist movie posters.
