The Northern Coast
The Northern Coast is a folk rock/alt rock, vocal driven band, formed in the early spring of 2014, and started as the brain child of Arron Crook. A year later with the partnership of the fuzz laden guitar of Hunter Hansen, the sound became what it is today. The songs are inspired by personal tales of love, lust, and loss set to the backdrop of the harsh Canadian climate.
After releasing the “Revelry” EP in February 2017, they were invited to support Canadian heavyweights The Rural Alberta Advantage for two sold out shows in Vancouver and Calgary. Followed by a showcase at NXNE festival, Circle The Wagons and over 50 shows across Canada in 2017.
“Leading off with the sauntering “Georgia Moon,” the band shows an affinity for classic sounds, a bit of a “20th Century Boy” heel-toe, and nicely placed lady harmonies mingling with the subtle crooning of vocalist Arron Crook. “Trouble” is another swaggering number laced with bad boy grittiness, more dangerous than pining, but perhaps a little concerned with the appearance of danger than actual recklessness. “Rusted Love” gets closer to the bone, it’s inevitable hard Sunday feelings of a Saturday night well spent, to a jangling Interpol-esque guitar line from Hunter Hansen that sits nicely among the other cuts, as tonal left turns tend to do.” -Mike Dunn, Beatroute, May 2017 Issue
