"Imaginary Friends" EP Review
The opener "Waves" takes a bit to get going but once it does, it's a more Radiohead-esque experimental Rock style. The track is methodical in its melody and riffs to create an atmospheric track that really draws in the listener. "Chasing Light" is a bit more subdued and features an older throwback Rock style. The Mumford and Sons type vibes is a change of pace but shows off the range of the band perfectly. "Clocks & Knives" is a nice chilled back, radio friendly Rock track. The overpowering riff throughout the track is catchy enough to get hooked to very easily. The guitar solo is excellent as well. "Waste Of Time" is methodical in its approach. The delivery is more akin to the opener and features haunting vocals and melodies that glides along effortlessly. "Cold Feet" cranks up the enery level quite a bit. The track will get the live crowd moving around, dancing and singing along in no time. It's upbeat in all the right ways and has single written all over it. The closer "Roll Me In The Fire" is two miutes of Rock n Roll fire. It's an awesome way to go out on and really leaves the listener salivating for more.

Verdict:
Coattails sets the bar high for Rock music with their recent "Imaginary Friends" EP.
