The Coral Sea is a California-based indie rock band led by Rey Villalobos. Their music is atmospheric and ambient. Their songs have been used on American TV shows Grey's Anatomy, Sleeper Cell and Californication. Their song "Yesterday / Tomorrow" was used at the end of the series pilot for Standoff.

The five-piece band was formed in 2004 by lead singer and songwriter Rey Villalobos. Their self-produced first album Volcano and Heart was released in 2006. After their debut, they toured the US and the UK, sharing bills with artists such as The Walkmen, St. Vincent, The Silversun Pickups, and Frank Black. They have also been in rotation on numerous radio shows, including KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. In 2006, their song "Look at Her Face", from their first album, caught the attention of ABC TV and was featured on the Grey’s Anatomy season finale. In 2009, their song “Ah, Ah, Ah”, from their second album "Firelight", was featured on Grey's Anatomy.
