Waxahatchee releases the second single from upcoming album "Cerulean Salt," "Coast To Coast."
It's fitting that Katie Crutchfield, aka Waxahatchee, would find her biggest success after a breakup. We're talking about the 2011 dissolution of her old band P.S. Eliot, the small, but intensely loved cult punk band she fronted with her twin sister. In the time since then, the Birmingham DIY emblem has released a series of well-received songs online and an album called American Weekend. This track, "Coast to Coast," is the second off her forthcoming follow-up, Cerulean Salt, out March 15 on Don Giovanni.

Waxahatchee channels her punk-rock roots into poetic guitar pop in "Peace And Quiet."
Perhaps you'll remember Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield as the choppy-haired chick behind Southern punk act P.S. Eliot. Ever since her departure from the group a couple years ago, Crutchfield has kept busy with her solo effort, releasing a lo-fi full-length album American Weekend in 2011. Now, Waxahatchee's back with a brand-new track, "Peace And Quiet," which will be the first single off her sophomore record, Cerulean Salt. And while P.S. Eliot stayed firmly rooted in indie-punk, favoring heavily distorted guitars and pounding drums, Waxahatchee jumps ahead a couple genres, channeling mid-'90s alt-rock acts like Hole and The Breeders rather than, say, Bikini Kill or X-Ray Spex.
