"Coast is Clear" begins with a recording of Peter playing a keyboard for a handful of seconds until someone shouts "Eyo, Peter" and the melody comes to an abrupt halt. From Peter's partially inaudible response I get the sense he was in his own world, and I can picture him standing in the studio, fingers dancing on the keyboard in front of him, his eyes closed and his head slightly swaying as he's concentrating on the timbre of every note. Peter sounds like he's playing off in the distance, which gives the audio clip a field-recording quality and makes it a wonderful, short document of one musician's genuine love of his craft. It fits the spirit of "Coast is Clear" pretty well, especially the part where Chance commands listeners to "dance like it hurts to stand still." It's a jubilant, catchy pop-centric dance tune that's kind of about getting lost in a song just like "Coast is Clear" and celebrating that moment. Get lost in the tune after the jump.
