Stream: “In Love” – Coma Culture




I tend to naturally write melancholic songs, so this song is proof to my mom that I can write a happy one.  As an over-thinker, I wanted a song that celebrated spontaneity and love.

There’s a freeing levity to all of love’s forms – be it romantic, platonic, or pure joie de vivre. It’s the kind of cheer that sends us sky-high, making every moment feel limitless, beautiful, and full of hope and radiant light. Coma Culture tap into love’s euphoria on their sophomore single “In Love,” a buoyant groove that finds Young The Giant’s Eric Cannata and Francois Comtois and former tour manager Jon O’Brien reveling in a sweetly seductive dream pop haze.

In Love - Coma Culture
In Love – Coma Culture
When the clock strikes twelve
And the coast is clear

I will come back baby
Cause it’s time to disappear.
So we hit the road
And the car breaks down
You’re my runaway babe
Let’s hitchhike out of town.

Atwood Magazine is proud and honored to be premiering Coma Culture’s track “In Love,” the second single off the new band’s recently-announced forthcoming debut album Camouflage (out June 25th via Repost Network). The trio of Young The Giant’s longtime members Eric Cannata and Francois Comtois and producer/songwriter (and former Young the Giant tour manager) Jon O’Brien, Coma Culture first introduced themselves in mid-March through their debut single “Coma Culture,” a mesmerizing immersion of charming guitars, lilting melodies, and lush harmony-rich vocals that elevate the overall listening experience to brilliant heights.


Leaning more towards Lord Huron’s ethereal folk rock aesthetic than the charged, driving indie rock of Young the Giant, Coma Culture are not to be missed or taken lightly – nor are they akin to U2 rebranding as Passengers for a stint: The band is its own special entity with a unique identity distinct from its members’ other projects.

“Jon, Francois, and I have many shared influences including Broken Social Scene, Slowdive, The Cure, and Sparklehorse,” Eric Cannata tells Atwood Magazine. “Instrumentally, we were drawn to the Juno 106, piano, Silvertone guitars, and warbly tape machines to name a few. We each brought songs we had written and demoed separately to the first session. After listening to everything, we realized there were nine that lived in the same world, three songs from each member. We then spent time producing and finishing each song, and ended up writing the track “Always” in the studio altogether.  Each member played a myriad of instruments on the record, as there are no set roles within the band.”

Cannata spent the majority of the pandemic at home in LA – “tinkering in my apartment recording studio, writing, and spending time with my loved ones.” For him and his new(“ish”) band mates, Coma Culture is a chance for something refreshingly different from the everyday – an altogether new endeavor without any expectations or external pressures. The band plan to continue releasing a series of singles leading up to the release of their debut album Camouflage; after that, Cannata says the possibilities are endless.

“We are planning on performing these songs at some point as well so keep your eyes out for some future shows. We have also been writing new songs remotely and hope to record another collection of songs this year. As of now, Jon is building a new recording studio in Idyllwild, CA, so we look forward to reuniting and recording new material in the woods!”

“Coma Culture” has already amassed over 130,000 streams on Spotify, and the hype for this brand new band is sure to continue rising with the release of “In Love.” A beachy explosion of intimate bliss, the radio single is a catchy, uplifting, and spirited jam. Exquisite, effervescent vocal harmonies and colorful, creative synth work call to mind the likes of MGMT’s debut Oracular Spectacular as Coma Culture lift off into the sonic skies above, with a celebratory chorus basking in a tender, love-laced moment of ecstasy:

Baby I’m in love with you
Every little thing you do
Baby I’m in love
In Love
I don’t need a reason why
Reasons are a waste of time
Baby I’m in love
In love

“‘In Love’ was initially written and demo’d in my apartment studio in Mar Vista, CA,” Cannata shares. “I wrote it a couple years ago, around the idea that love can be simple and freeing. I am an over-thinker, so I wanted a song that celebrates getting out of your head, and escaping the worries of life with a lover. I was inspired by my relationship, road trips, rainbows, and 80’s production. The production came to life in studio with Jon and Fran adding their colors to it. The song also proves to my mom that I can write a happy song.”

The happiness continues from the song’s bright, catchy chorus into the second verse as Cannata throws himself into the present – with every passing lyric conjuring up new images of togetherness and shared experiences for two:

So we throw our phones
Onto airplane mode
And we eat some shrooms
While we take off all our clothes
And we dance around like we don’t exist
No need for time, well, what’s the point of it? And all I know…
Baby I’m in love with you
Every little thing you do
Baby I’m in love

In Love
I don’t need a reason why
Reasons are a waste of time
Baby I’m in love

In love

Coma Culture’s story has barely begun, and they’ve already got us hooked on a feeling. Arriving at springtime’s precipice and with summer already on the horizon, “In Love” is an intoxicating feel-good ode to feeling good: To embracing the good times in our lives and living in the moment. It may be a celebration of love, but with its cheery disposition and saccharine melodies, it’s also a celebration of being alive. Whatever brings you joy today, elevate and enhance that feeling with Coma Culture’s “In Love” – streaming exclusively on Atwood Magazine!

Coma Culture’s debut album Camouflage is out June 25.

I feel free to say it loud
Say it loud
‘Cause I know you feel it too.
Baby I’m in love with you
Every little thing you do
Baby I’m in love

In Love
I don’t need a reason why
Reasons are a waste of time
Baby I’m in love

In love
