Overcoats are a folk/electro duo with a fresh sound, spectacular vocals and stunning harmonies.

About: Overcoats is New York-based female duo Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell. Their sound captivates, combining electronic backdrops with soaring, harmonic intimacy — a sort of Chet Faker meets Simon & Garfunkel. Overcoats’ songs draw strength from vulnerability, finding uplifting beauty in simple, honest songwriting.

Their self-titled debut EP released in June 2015 felt magnetic, attracting critics and fans alike. Its four tracks are smooth, dark, and spacious. Wrapped in dusky reverb, the duo’s voices glide over shivering chords and minimal electronics. Smaller than My Mother andThe Fog surge with dance-floor energy, while Little Memory and Walk On unfold in gentle, soulful waves.
