“Buddy Love Goes Coconuts” is a title I’ve wanted to use for a long time. I always felt it would be a great name for an album, but had no way of knowing how spot on it would be in the end. This album was recorded over a non-consecutive period of two years. Two years of change, loss, and new beginnings. To me, this album seems almost like the end of one film and the start of the next. It has a strange way of reading like a diary, or a series of postcards telling tales of what was going on in one’s life when each was sent… to those who are and aren’t a part of ones life anymore. And might not even care to read them.
My main influences while writing and recording this album were “Currents” by Tame Impala and “The Party” by Andy Shauf. Both felt so relatable to me. They seemed to have come from a deeper space from within each artist. I guess they inspired me to look deeper to find inspiration and to really use each song as a way to scream out whatever it was I was feeling at the time. It’s an album that I believe could be relatable to anyone who’s ever felt like they just could not figure out where they were going. “What path am I on?” - “Is this really what I want my life to be?”
In hindsight, maybe Buddy Love had gone a little coconuts. But maybe it wasn’t all in vein. - Cole Tyler Hottenrott
