Hayley Coupon is excited to share a new track, “Bastille Day,” off her forthcoming EP Do The Right Thing, Like You Said You Would.  The single premiered via New York Times T Magazine who said its “is equal parts comfort-food soul and stripped-down balladry.”

“Bastille Day” is the second track to be revealed off the forthcoming Do The Right Thing, Like You Said You Would. Previously Coupon released the song “It’s Not” which Bullet Magazine said “features her deep, alluring voice bellowing smart, longing lyrics over a poppy yet folksy trumpet and piano sound. It’s catchy and pretty and an enticing preview of her what we can expect from the EP…”   Last year Hayley released her debut EP Remembrance and Pigeons and Planes said, “her voice has a unique tone that sets Coupon apart from her singer-songwriter contemporaries and places her in a category all her own.”   Among the singles was her well-received cover of Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” which IndieShuffle reviewed saying, “with just an acoustic guitar, banjo, and upright bass, the New York singer-songwriter’s soulful swooning croon crafts a gentle dulcet tone to the longing tune that makes it feel more like an Appalachian folk standard.”

A self-taught New York-based singer and pianist, Coupon writes songs that bridge the seemingly impassable divide between vocals-driven pop and acoustic, lyrically lush folk rock.  Remembrance is richly yet sparingly orchestrated, nostalgic, and poignantly performed. It is grounded in Coupon’s rhythmic piano and expressive vocals with influences as disparate as Joni Mitchell and Radiohead, or Leonard Cohen and Jon Brion.  Coupon reclaims and updates the spirit and tradition of the singer/song-writer art form in its confessional compositions and personal imagery.   Her songwriting has been commended for it’s “reserved strength and fierce delicateness” Kick Kick Snare.
