Single Review: King Creosote – Coast On By

King Creosote is the stage name used by Kenny Anderson for his solo material. The brilliant single Coast on By is a particularly likeable song from new album Flick the Vs. It begins with a bizarre, almost house like, electro drum beat, before leaping into a compelling chorus.

Coast on By is a reflection of the thoughts of those who live in small towns – a feeling that something is  missing, mixed with a sense of isolation, but still wanting to be left where they are. Andersons’ distinctive voice sails through the lyrics, adding to it’s likeability and it’s quality doesn’t fade on repeat listen. Highly recommended.
