Taryn Randall is a true New York gem.
Her sound is poignant. Her audience is niche. Listening to her music, you get the sense that she is the kind of artist that actually cares about honing her art. She is just starting out, which makes her even more endearing. Randall, lead singer of the Brooklyn based indie band Cote, is the perfect artist to listen to as you get ready for winter.
Her music is a little bit hopeful and little bit wistful with a little bit of melancholy mixed in for good measure.
Cote’s new song “Meet Me in the Morning”, released this month, is a fragile anthem that is perfect for any morning commute. Randall’s vocals are ethereal and the song’s melody is as light and flowy as a melody can be. Randall also looks like the typical indie rock muse, with long brown hair and an inscrutable expression. Think Pattie Boyd before she married George Harrison.
“Meet Me in the Morning” has a bit of a 70s feel as well. The track opens with a blend of guitar and woodwinds reminiscent of a late Beatles track. The song is a little bit hippy-dippy sounding, but in the current climate that comes off as refreshing rather than derivative.
Cote’s music makes you want to roll around in a field with a bongo drum and a flower wreath in your hair. At least, that’s what it did for me and I’m not usually prone to that sort of thing.
I cannot say enough positive things about “Meet Me in the Morning”. Indie rock is a fast-growing and often over-saturated genre. Cote brings a level of originality and bliss to their music that will differentiate them from the throng. Feed the hipster snob inside you and join the Cote train before everyone is on it. After all, what is better than discovering an artist early in their rise to the top? Maybe chocolate, but that’s about it.
