Do the Right Thing, Like You Said You Would

by Hayley Coupon

“Coupon’s forthcoming EP, the piano-driven “Do The Right Thing, Like You Said You Would,” evokes singers like Mitchell, Fiona Apple and Amy Winehouse at their creative peaks. “Bastille Day,” which premieres here, is equal parts comfort-food soul and stripped-down balladry. In Coupon’s words: “There’s a moment when you recognize a person, and you are seeing each other for who the person truly is. And you really can’t look at each other the same way. It’s bittersweet, but there’s a hopefulness in it.’”
