Waxahatchee – “Coast To Coast” (Stereogum Premiere)

Tom Breihan | February 21, 2013 - 10:08 am

Last year, Waxahatchee, the soul-baring punk band led by former P.S. Eliot member Katie Crutchfield, released the excellent and slept-on American Weekend, a debut album full of acoustic songs intense enough to burn your face off. Next month, she’ll follow it up with Cerulean Salt, a full-band album that’s already sounding to me like one of the year’s best. We’ve already posted the early track “Peace And Quiet,” and now here’s “Coast To Coast,” a bouncy and emotive punk song that starts to show Crutchfield’s songwriting range. Listen below.

Cerulean Salt is out 3/5 on Don Giovanni.
