Overcoats Release Dreamy New Track "Kai's Song" From Debut Album 'Young' (4/21, Arts & Crafts)

Band Embarking On Headlining Tour This Month, Dates Supporting Joseph Added


Overcoats have released the latest cut from their debut album ‘YOUNG’ (4/21, Arts & Crafts). The introspective track “Kai’s Song” sees members Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell reflecting on the small daily changes that can add up to make someone almost unrecognizable. Pigeons & Planes said, "Overcoats shine with their vocal harmonies and timeless songwriting, creating an intriguing blend of modern and classic styles."

Overcoats just wrapped a run of dates supporting Maggie Rogers and will embark on a nationwide headlining tour this month, kicking things off with an album release show at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade on April 20th. In addition, the band has picked up dates opening for Joseph this June. Full tour routing can be found below.

‘YOUNG’ has earned early praise from Gorilla vs. Bear and NPR's Bob Boilen who said, "the deep friendship between Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell comes across in their vibrant harmonies and the bountiful dance parties that pop up as they go." Co-produced by Nicolas Vernhes (The War On Drugs, Dirty Projectors) and Autre Ne Veut, ‘YOUNG’ is a story about growing up told through the lens of two women who are wise beyond their years.

Hana and JJ started Overcoats while they were college roommates and they co-wrote all twelve songs on ‘YOUNG.’ The two were drawn to each other when they first met as teenagers in 2011, finding connection in a love of diverse musical styles, and forging a closeness that verges on sisterhood. Both members of Overcoats describe the first time hearing each other sing as an epiphany: the harmony of their voices leading to personal, individual discovery.
