Brooklyn alt-pop duo Overcoats have announced a forthcoming EP called Used To Be Scared Of The Dark, and they’ve previewed the collection with a video for their new collaboration with Tennis, “The Hardest Part.”
Featuring stunning acoustic guitar lines and sun-tinged instrumentals, this breezy new track is all about letting go. The accompanying hazy, Asha Maura-directed video marks the first of a three part video, which “follow a young couple getting ready to go out,” Maura explains, ultimately making for “a story about young love meeting for the first time and connecting at a party.”
“This song is about coming to terms with a relationship being over,” Overcoats explain of the new track. “And the hard reality that you may never know where that person ends up or what they do. It’s about letting go. We brought this song to Tennis because it needed their nostalgic retro pop sound to help tell this story. And it needed to be cooler. Alaina’s sultry vocals tickle the ears throughout the track and the signature Tennis guitar sounds soothe along the lyrically heavy journey.”

“All of these songs were made remotely, which was a really wild experience,” Hana explains of the EP. “It required a lot of trust in ourselves and in our collaborators. We have loved all of these artists for so long, we knew that the intersection between their sound and ours would be cool no matter what.”
