Commenting on the track, vocalist and mandolin player Anouk van der Kamp says: “‘Right Fit’ is about growing apart from someone—you keep trying to do the right thing but you feel like you’re just never going to be enough. You know things have run their course but you don’t want to say it out loud just yet.”

“It’s always hard to admit that you’re growing apart from someone because you both changed. I’m really bad at having difficult conversations like that so I usually just wait until someone confronts me and I can’t avoid it anymore.”

Completed by bassist Frank Peters and twin brothers Daan (guitar) and Joost Ebbers (drums), the four-piece met while studying music at performing arts school in Arnhem. Snow Coats was originally formed as a final exam project, but after graduating the band decided that they loved playing together so much that they would continue writing, and have been best friends ever since.

Based in Arnhem, The Netherlands, Snow Coats released their debut album Take The Weight Off Your Shoulders in the summer of 2018. Artfully self-recorded at home in their parents’ attics, the record was named as the #1 album of 2018 by highly regarded Dutch alternative pop platform 3voor12Gelderland

The album release was followed by an extensive tour of The Netherlands and a 2019 support tour opening for Pinegrove, with word of their sparkling indie pop eventually reaching UK shores and ears in early 2020 as the band signed to Alcopop! Records and released the Pool Girl EP.

Already burrowing their way into the ears and hearts of UK fans with alarming speed, the Pool Girl EP received support from CLASHRock SoundDORK MagazineThe Forty FiveGod Is In The TV Zine and more.

The band also soundtracked the official trailer for the BBC Radio 4 Summer Comedy Festival, scored a #1 in the Dutch Indie XL chart, and received spins from Radio X‘s John Kennedy, BBC Radio One‘s Indie Show with Jack Saunders, and Amazing Radio‘s Audition new music show with Charlie Ashcroft. 

Lead single ‘Pool Girl’ was a featured tune on the Co-Op Edit with Hattie Pearson, playlisted at Idobi Anthm, and also picked up a slew of regional and specialist radio support.

The band will be revealing more new music and further details of the second album over the coming months.
