Indie-Pop Duo Overcoats Will “Never Let You Go” in New Single/Music Video

Stunning indie-pop duo Overcoats is back with their new single, “Never Let You Go,” and its music video ahead of their forthcoming album, Winner, available April 7.

As someone who was OBSESSED with their album The Fight when it came out in 2020, I am honored to introduce you to this pop powerhouse if you haven’t been introduced already. The duo is comprised of talented songwriters JJ Mitchell and Hana Elion, and they beautifully compliment each other in sound and style, especially in this new track/video filled with pleasant harmonies and creative imagery.

“Never Let You Go”’s opening deep piano notes draw you in and its catchy beat grows like a heart’s. They intimately sing to each other through a tense conversation on a covered couch surrounded by candles and clutter, bursting into interpretive dance. It even appears to be filmed in one take! Co-directed by Overcoats and Sharif El Neklawy, the band had fun leaving various clues in the scene about the song’s narrative. 

This song adds to their catalog of how Overcoats is able to masterfully blend elements of pop, country, and electronic. Their new album Winner was produced by two-time Grammy-winner Daniel Tashian (Golden Hour co-producer), and continues to exhibit what just makes them so special.

Having previously toured with such notable artists as Mitski, Maggie Rogers, Cold War Kids, Tennis, and The Japanese House, Overcoats looks forward to returning to the road this spring. Watch the music video here and stay tuned for new music of theirs coming soon.

Betty Who, headliner of Kinetic Presents Pride Month event

Zach Renovátes, Kinetic Presents: In the Name of Love For All

As a producer bringing some major events to Capital Pride this year, Zach Renovátes admits that he was keen to get Betty Who on the lineup. After having seen several of her live performances already, Renovátes knew the Australian would make a fine marquee addition to the “Kinetic Presents Candyland” event at Echostage June 10.

Fortunately, she was both available and interested.

“Something that I personally saw was that [Betty Who] is one of the most pro-LGBT singer-songwriters I’ve ever ever seen perform live,” Renovátes said, adding that the D.C. audiences at her concerts come largely from within the gay community. “So she absolutely knows that we as queer people make up a huge percentage of her fan base.”
The June 10 event is the main draw of a weekend of collaborations between Kinetic Presents and the Capital Pride Alliance in celebration of D.C. Pride 2023. Other big names who will play at various venues around the District include DJs Abel and Cindel, Dan Slater, as well as Jerac and Paulo Fragoso. It’ll be a pride-filled musical weekend indeed, with Echostage, Sax, Bunker and Bliss Nightclub hosting the pulsing sounds of revelry. And there’s also the big parade on June 10.
