FROM: Savannah, GA
Part school dance, part basement show and wholly unforgettable, Savannah, GA garage-pop quartet COEDS have exercised and conquered the Weekend Warrior approach to touring, releasing a handful of sought after singles and cassettes along the way. September 2nd 2016 will see the band’s proper full-length debut, Thrill Me!, released via Florida's New Granada Records.
The title Thrill Me! references a catchphrase from 80's cult classic “Night of the Creeps” while paying homage to the band’s hometown of Savannah, where, in the summer, neighborhood kids hit the streets in search of homemade frozen juice pops, called ‘thrills.’
The album, led by vocal team Anna Chandler and Philip Reynolds Price's Patti & Lenny-esque trade-offs, is a high-fructose helping of vintage-inspired rock ‘n’ roll in the vein of Detroit Cobras, The King Khan & BBQ Show, and The Cramps. Whether they’re contacting past lovers via Ouija board (“Mystifyin’ Oracle”), dancing across the gym floor in their bobby socks (“I Wanna Dance With You [All Night Long]”), or calling out lecherous cat-callers (“Night of the Creeps”), COEDS keeps it raw and hooky with memorable melodies and explosive energy.

"Straight up mugging the night, however, was Savannah band COEDS. While typical first acts warm things up, these guys and girl made their Orlando debut by lighting the wick and shooting off like a Roman candle."

"...what might happen if you poured Dusty Springfield, the Clash and a Cuba Libre into a packet of Pop Rocks and shook vigorously."

"COEDS are what your high school teachers would sound like if they formed a rock band and were actually really good."
- The Wild Honey Pie
"Rowdy, loud, and carrying a swagger akin to the B-52s, COEDS have been making some major waves locally and are sure to explode sooner rather than later."
