The Coasts came out in force last night. It was a bit surprising to hear these much louder, shaggier versions of the power pop gems on the band’s relatively low-key self-titled album.

Showcase judge Epiphany wrote that he’d “expect to hear their music on the soundtrack for a Joseph Gordon-Levitt (star of “50/50” and “500 Days of Summer”) movie real soon.”

Sammy Williams dug the band’s bright and sunny sound. “Harmonies were great,” he wrote. “I would have used 300 percent more of them.”
