A lively Thom Yorke-inspired tenor voice, and a shimmering, spacious production style bring together modern elements of hooky melody, live drums, and electric bass to express an ultimatum: we do this the right way, or not at all.

Choice is the poison, and the cure. Do we choose together, or apart; darkness, or the light? Sometimes, being together makes all the sense in the world:

“All our moves are picture perfect
like a movie script
it just fit.”— KOATES

This song feels like a fitting ode to that feeling you get when you find the right person: all you can see is a future as bright as the love that blinds you.

KOATES is an Indie-Rock trio from London. This song is featured on our Lost Treasure - Indie Rock playlist.
