Biography

Los Angeles, United States (2009 – present)

Best Coast is a band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 2009. The band comprises Bethany Cosentino (vocals, guitar) and Bobb Bruno (lead guitar). Best Coast released their debut album, “Crazy for You,” on July 27, 2010, on Mexican Summer Records. The album debuted at No. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100. Songfacts reports that actress Drew Barrymore directed the music video for their track Our Deal.

Beach blanket lo-fi pop from Bethany Cosentino, (formerly of Pocahaunted), inspired by Bethany’s longing for Los Angeles while spending her days in NY attending Eugene Lang College, Best Coast sprung forth during her first days back in California. She says we can expect “songs about summer and the sun and the ocean and being a lazy creep,” with “drums, beach boys bass lines, and other amazing things” added by her friend Bobb Bruno.

Side Projects/Past Bands: Pocahaunted, Uphill Gardeners, Polar Goldie Cats, Goliath Bird Eater, submissions.

    Without a doubt a step up from the last two boring releases (Only Place and that lackluster EP). I'm digging it a lot more than I thought I would... not sure if it's a keeper though I'd have to listen to it more.

    Reminds me of Azure Ray. Way too apathetic for Blink (maybe Boxcar Racer). I like the mix of depressing lyrics (ghostwritten by a 10 YO) and sunny melody,

    California Nights takes a while to get used to, very 90s, reminds me of Cranberries. Loving the sound after a few play throughs. Not a "love at first listen" album, but few are nowadays anyway.

    Gave the record a shot and nah. Not as bad as I expected but they just get consistently worse. Girl cannot write to save her life. Wouldn't be surprised if a 10 yr old was ghostwriting for her. They were at their best on the early eps where they didn't mix her vocals to the front. Just seems like they're trying to force some kind of paramore type deal to market this band.

    Best rock band in a long time. To me Best Coast sounds a lot like the band Therapy?
