“It’s all about being so in love with someone, that you start blowing off your friends to spend time with just them," is how Coach Party's lead vocalist and bassist Jess Eastwood sums up her band's new track, ‘Really Ok On My Own’, which is out now via Chess Club Records.
The rousing grunge-pop "anthem to the fight against yourself and the pressure of being okay on your own" comes after their recent single ‘Can’t Talk, Won’t’, and continues their fuzzy indie winning formula.
"There’s always that fight," continues Eastwood on the song's theme, "where when you love someone so much, you also think of the possibility of suddenly ‘would you be ok without them?’ Then there’s the chorus of ‘does she even know you’re here’ - this is relating to a scenario where you’re with someone who’s already with someone else, and you’re always comparing yourself to them: ‘do I make you feel better’. Generally touching base on how complicated love is, and where your thoughts can spiral.”
