Based up the road from me in Sunderland in North East England, Coal Train are comprised of three quarters of the much missed post-punk band This Aint Vegas and their new single ‘Carry You On My Shoulders’ (Run Of The Mill) is actually a re-working of an old TAV song.
Influenced by bands like Red House Painters, The Band and Wilco, I guess you could say it’s kind of like if The Hold Steady had grown up on a diet of Dischord Records rather than Springsteen!? Maybe you shouldn’t say that, though.
Check out the rather lovely video:
And be sure to check out the demo of Wish List on Soundcloud, got a lot of time for this song me:
