Long For The Coast

#musiciscommunity

South West Band Of The Year 2021

​Long For The Coast is Jamie and Sophie Gould (+ sometimes solo (Jamie) and sometimes with their full band). With a combination of sincere lyrics and beautiful harmonies, they sing stories about social change, spiritual adventures, and close friends lost and found. 

“Just beautiful…they’ve done it again.”  James Santer, BBC Introducing

Their music combines influences from artists such as Ben Howard, Bonobo, This Is The Kit, Nitin Sawhney, Frank Turner, and Sufjan Stevens. They’ve been championed by the BBC Radio 6 Music as well as playing at Nozstock, Greenbelt and Shambala festivals. 

They just became South West Band Of The Year (thanks to the influential blog Listen With Monger) plus they have loyal audiences across the South West as well as fans across the UK and beyond. 

Honest, endearing, and fiercely hopeful, LFTC believe that ‘music is community’ and aim to promote a culture of authenticity where people feel safe to be themselves. From cafés and festivals to book shops and bakeries, this Devon-based duo will play anywhere that people might listen to. Their debut album Revolution Starts At Home received fantastic reviews and airplay whilst continuing to gain hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify and tens of thousands of views on Youtube. 

LFTC are part of the PAK JÖI Records family and managed by From The Whitehouse.
