Coin (often stylized COIN) is an American indie pop band formed in 2012 at Nashville, Tennessee. It currently consists of Chase Lawrence (lead vocals, synthesizers), Ryan Winnen (drums), Joe Memmel (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Zachary Dyke (bass guitar).
The band originally released two extended plays in 2012 and 2013 titled Saturdays and 1992 respectively. They then gained mainstream attention in 2015 with the lead single, “Run”, from their eponymous debut album, produced by Jay Joyce, released later the same year by Columbia.
The group gained further mainstream success in 2016 with the lead single, “Talk Too Much”, from the band’s second studio album, How Will You Know If You Never Try, which was released on April 21, 2017. The song has since become their first song to chart on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart.
The band was formed in 2012 by Chase Lawrence, Ryan Winnen, Joe Memmel, and Zach Dyke, all of whom were students at Belmont University. Lawrence and Memmel were classmates who would sit next to each other in music theory classes. After they decided to try writing music together, Winnen and Dyke were introduced to them through mutual friends.
