Best Coast are an American rock duo formed in Los Angeles, California in 2009. The band consists of songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Bethany Cosentino and guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno. Cosentino, a former child actress, began writing music as a teenager and was formerly a member of the experimentalist drone group Pocahaunted. After a brief tenure at college in New York City, Cosentino returned to the West Coast and began recording lo-fi demos with Bruno, whom she met in the Los Angeles music scene. They will release California Nights, their third full-length album, on Virgin EMI on 4th May; produced by Wally Gagel (Miley Cyrus, New Order, Muse), and recorded at WAX LTD in Hollywood, California – it is a brighter, more sparkly, more sophisticated, more psychedelic Best Coast album across the board, embodying the rich lightness and stinging darkness of a California state of mind. Available in CD and limited edition (500) LP form. On tour in April – 20th – London, England – Electric Ballroom, 22nd – Manchester, England – Dot to Dot Festival, 23rd – Bristol, England – Dot to Dot Festival, 24th – Nottingham, England – Dot to Dot Festival. Radio support from 6 Music and XFM.
