Overcoats stream new single “Leave The Light On”

Overcoats stream new single "Leave The Light On".

“Leave The Light On” is the new single from Overcoats’ debut album YOUNG. The full-length will be available April 21st on Arts & Crafts.

“We wrote it after a long winter in NYC, after feeling monumental changes in our social lives, our everyday existence and realizing what it means to be far from our parents,” Overcoats’ Hana Elion tells Nylon. “The song, for us, is about realizing that you are changing and transforming – everybody always is – and that you can embrace the ways in which you are moving forward.”

Overcoats will be opening for Tennis and Maggie Rogers, along with more headlining dates on the west coast in June. The band will also perform at SXSW before embarking on their tour in support of YOUNG in April.

YOUNG was Co-produced by Nicolas Vernhes (The War On Drugs, Dirty Projectors) and Autre Ne Veut, YOUNG is a story about growing up told through the lens of two women who are wise beyond their years.

Overcoats is comprised of former college roommates Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell, who co-wrote all twelve songs on YOUNG. The two were drawn to each other when they first met as teenagers in 2011, finding connection in a love of diverse musical styles, and forging a closeness that verges on sisterhood. Both members of Overcoats describe the first time hearing each other sing as an epiphany: the harmony of their voices leading to personal, individual discovery.
