Niko Moon: Coastin’ – EP Review
Niko Moon’s brand new EP, Coastin’, is out now, June 10th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new music below and check out our full review.
Your summer record is officially here! Niko Moon, king of good vibes and appreciated life, is back with a brand new project to fall in love with. Moon releases his five-song project, Coastin’ just in time for warm weather and some sunshine.
The record kicks off with its lead single, “Easy Tonight.” The beach-vibe song is the perfect introduction to the new EP. It sets the mood for a record that is primed for an outdoor, laidback, summer country show. Moon’s effortlessness is on full display on the funky and catchy new mid-tempo song.
“Where the music is playin’ // People are singing // Like these old Levi’s, yeah we’re getting faded // No, I just can’t get enough // Bartender fill up my cup // ‘Cause I just wanna raise one up // It’s going down easy tonight // Ain’t it good when it all feels right // ‘Tween this drink in my hand // And some real good friends // It’s going down easy tonight”
Coastin’ continues with its title track. Quite possibly the most beach-ready, “Coastin'” is the perfect nostalgic song. Moon paints the picture for listeners of laying in the sun with someone you love or just chilling on your own, in the water, with no care in the world.
Next up, “All That We Need” is the middle track on the project. The song, one of our favorites from the collection, reminds us all to pay attention to the important things in life. Moon is always spreading his message of positivity and gratitude throughout his music.
“We could be rich, we could be broke // We could be young, we could be old // It don’t matter, no // Cause I got you, you got me // That’s all that we need // Take my hand // You gunna see // That’s all we need”
The record culminates with “Back Nine” and “One Drink Away.” Both songs are the perfect tracks to dance and drink too. The former is the song you need, once you make it through a break-up. On the other hand, “One Drink Away,” albeit slower-tempo, is the song that gives you hope in romance. It is the perfect song to end the record.
Overall, Coastin’ is an EP that we all needed. Moon is a one-of-a-kind singer-songwriter, whose message of positivity and good vibes is much appreciated. Not to mention, he has the songwriting chops and vocals to match!
