Coma Cinema is an American indie pop band that was formed by Mat Cothran in 2005. Mat began writing songs for the band during his high school days in Spartanburg, but the band is now based in Columbia, South Carolina.

Coma Cinema's Blue Suicide was released in March 2011,[1] on both cassette (via Wonderbeard Tapes) and vinyl (via Fork and Spoon Records), as well as digitally on the band's website.[2]


Cothran began writing songs under the name 'Coma Cinema' early in his teens.[3] After years of performing locally, Cothran released a collection of his recordings in January 2009, entitled Baby Prayers.

Baby Prayers caught the attention of music blogs and websites—including, who posted the music video for "Flower Pills" in February 2010.[4] In June 2010, Coma Cinema followed up with their second album, Stoned Alone.[5] Accompanying its digital release, Coma Cinema announced on their website that their music is "currently feed [to] download and cumsumption."[6]

Coma Cinema's third album, Blue Suicide, was released in March 2011 in both digital and physical formats (Wonderbeard Tapes released cassette tapes; Fork and Spoon Records pressed the vinyl).[7] Two tracks off Blue Suicide have already been released in a split 7" single with the band Teen Porn through AMDISCS: "Wondering" and "Greater Vultures."[8]

On May 27, 2013 it was announced that Coma Cinema's fourth record Posthumous Release would be released on June 11, 2013 on cassette tape through Orchid Tapes and on vinyl through Fork and Spoon Records.[9]
