Coquette rocks. That’s the first thing you need to know.
The Vermont-based trio is heading south to Mazzstock to help kick off a stacked Saturday lineup on 8/27. So here’s what you’re gonna do: you’re gonna wake up, brush your teeth, put your pants on one leg at a time and fucking rock out with Coquette at 1:40pm. These guys are like the audio version of 5-Hour Energy.
I’m digging into their 4-song EP Seperatio right now and I’m getting a ton of vibes. There’s a punk-meets-jam element, with some great storytelling going on. I’m almost getting an Umprehy’s gist from an arrangement standpoint — balancing melodic and funky parts with heavier rock-out sections. This is my first listen, and my takeaway is this: I can’t wait to see these guys live in just five (!) days.
Mazzstock takes place from 8/26-28 in Marlboro, NY (~90 minutes north of NYC). Get your tickets at http://www.mazzstock.com.
