Best Coast are 23-year old songwriter Bethany Cosentino and musical partner Bobb Bruno.
Their sun-kissed songs of love and longing have been attracting much attention over recent months following a string of now sold-out 7” releases Stateside on the independent labels Group Tightener, Atelier Cuseaux, Art Fag, Black Iris, PPM and Eskuche. The only place you’ll find these rare gems now is on eBay.
Over here, a hugely successful debut UK/European tour in May included a packed out show at Brighton’s Great Escape festival and culminated in a knockout performance at Primavera in front of 10,000 music fans.
None of the songs on Crazy for You have been previously released on earlier 7-inches. For the album’s sessions Cosentino brought in a collection of demos she had never sent to Bruno. “I wanted the record to be something completely fresh and new,” says Cosentino. “I just felt like my first record needed to be really special.”
Their LP was recorded at Black Iris, a studio in LA’s Echo Park neighbourhood, and produced by Lewis Pesacov of the bands Fool’s Gold and Foreign Born.
