Best Coast won me over back in 2010 when they released their first album, Crazy for You.
The duo of Bethany and Bobb (usually) works musical magic, sounding like California hazy pop. They have a “fuzzy” sound which usually qualifies them as lo-fi, but it just adds to the dreaminess.
Recently, they released their second album, The Only Place. It’s a bit cleaner and lyrically stronger. Let’s be honest, ‘Boyfriend’ was catchy but the lyrics “I wish he was my boyfriend/I’d love him till the very end/But instead he is just a friend/I wish he was my boyfriend” aren’t exactly poetic. But, thankfully, they have matured in this area.
It’s perfect summer music so go have a listen!
