Do You Want Me? Reckless Coast Wants to Know A Bold Single For A New Era

by the partae

With a sonic tonality like a spring-time magpie, the new Reckless Coast single “Do You Want Me?”, presents a modern euphoria that reminisces on Australian Rock nostalgia.

Released today on all platforms, “Do You Want Me” was originally born as a shout out for creatives stuck in a job they hate just to make ends meet, and was written on shift behind a bar by front man Jaeden Ogston:

“I was sick of it that night… running around collecting glasses, handling the TAB, trying to serve, all without any help in sight. I was often burnt out which affected my music, and I just wanted to focus on what I love. The thoughts going through my head on that shift pretty much wrote the song.”

“Do You Want Me?” serves up addictive melodic hooks for fans; delivered through an almost preaching styled vocal performance, atop of thundering rhythm and a gritty guitar groove. Whilst old-school inspirations are without a doubt present, Reckless Coast conveys the track in a completely contemporary form.

Hailing from along the East Coast of Australia, the now Brisbane based power trio previously known as Rude Rum renamed to Reckless Coast this year to signify a new era:

“The old name didn’t portray us properly… plus we’ve grown so much sonically and personally, so a fresh name was needed. We’re three kids who grew up on the coast, and love a good rock show… Reckless Coast sums us up perfectly”

With last year’s single “TALK” being the band’s most successful to date (alongside it’s sold-out Brisbane homecoming show), the power trio is rapidly becoming known for some of the most organic and energetic live shows in their local scene. Holding a love for groove fuelled rock adrenaline, Reckless Coast is held by no labels, and heroes a refreshing contemporary zest unique to them alone.
