BEDROOM POP IF IT WAS A REAL THING -- Coma Figura's sound is connected at once to a specific, personal locale and to the greater American culture. Their honesty as writers and their education in the institutions of popular music harness the universal experiences of angst, melancholy, joy and romance. Darrel Fortune, host of Northwest Convergence Zone radio, cited this energy in a March 2014 interview; referencing the Pacific Northwest's long music history, he told them, "We're in a bit of lull, no doubt about it. We've gone to way too many final shows of bands who are calling it quits for whatever reason. That's why it's great to have you and bands like you hitting the scene right now. It's going to be really fun to watch you guys go...Let's create a new scene."
