Casey Cooper of CoastalDives

CoastalDives is the instrumental ambient project of Casey Cooper, best known as one half of Columbus electronic sibling duo The Receiver. 

“I was imagining jumping off of a cliff into the ocean, and not knowing what’s out there or what direction you’re gonna go, not knowing what you’re gonna run into,” Cooper said of the solo project's origins in a 2017 interview with Alive.

Cooper is following previous record All Small Bodies with a new album out June 14 on cassette and digital via New Motion Records. Local animator Donnie Mossman made the video for first single, "Sleepwalk," which was mixed by Glenn Davis and mastered by Danny Kalb. Watch and listen below, and sink into the moody sounds.
