Composed of Jason Nott (vocals, guitar), Drew Smith (bass), Bryan King (drums), and Yan Clermont (guitar), LA indie rock band Beachwood Coyotes have released new single, Discipline.

The band spoke with The Fountain about working with Austen Moret, what inspired the band name and a karaoke gig in Hawaii.

TF: The release of Discipline, you must be excited?

I am, I’m more proud of that song than any other we’ve released. Most of the time listening to my own music sounds like nails on a chalkboard.

TF: And what was it like to work with Austen Moret?

He’s a good friend that I feel comfortable trying new ideas with….whether they’re strange or vulnerable, it’s always a joy. Love that dude.

TF: What inspired the name Beachwood Coyotes?

It involves acid, coyotes, and a dead body. Not joking. Read the bio on our website

TF: Are you going to be promoting this with a tour, are we likely to see you play live soon?

Yes. We’re doing some dates with our friends Naked Walrus in May and I’m sure many more to follow. Mostly west coast until we can manage to have opportunities to go to other places.

TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?

Definitely the time I sang Come On Eileen at a karaoke bar in Hawaii. I was singing/dancing on tables and was promptly tackled and thrown out of the bar. I cried like a baby that night. It was a good Christmas.
