Review: COIN @ Irving Plaza

COIN returned to Irving Plaza 365 days to the day since their last show in New York.

Since 2015, COIN has been one of the most exciting modern bands to break through in the new-wave pop rock movement. Building their fan base on a highly engaging live show and music that makes you want to dance and sing at the top of your lungs, they’ve steadily been gaining mainstream attention touring across the North America and Europe in support of their two full-length albums, their eponymous debut COIN and sophomore album How Will You Know If You Never Try.

With four new singles out since their last album and a third LP set to deliver this spring, COIN is back in the spotlight again on their latest tour, which kicked off at the beginning of February and made its latest NYC stop this past Saturday.

The last time COIN played in New York was exactly one year ago to date before this stop at Irving Plaza, where they brought an entirely new light show and reorganized a setlist that now includes their three latest singles, “I Want It All,” “Cemetery,” and “Simple Romance.”

Showing once again that he’s at his best in front of a crowd, lead singer Chase Lawrence brought his signature high-energy style to the stage and beyond, running up & down, engaging with fans, and even climbing on the rafters toward the end of the set as he soaked in the venue’s rock heritage for the second time in a year. The crowd had plenty of enthusiasm to match the Chase & Co, singing every word of the setlist as they bopped with their favorite Belmont boys.
