Melting Vinyl & Coalition present…
We’re thrilled to announce that, following last year’s sold out show, Best Coast will be returning to Coalition this June in celebration of their much anticipated new release!
Following the release of their debut album Crazy For You in 2010, this LA duo (formed of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno) have gone from strength to strength, their lo-fi surf rock stylings picking up acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, signature track ‘Boyfriend’ even proclaimed the 49th best track of the past 150 years by NME.
It’s not just on record that the duo excel, with venues sold out across the globe, and their timeless, minimalistic tunes perfectly suited for the odd sing-a-long moment. A Best Coast live show is always memorable, and refreshingly free of gimmickry.
“Bethany Cosentino pens songs that essay love and all its attendant anguishes in the language of True Romance comics, in words scrawled by heart-broken teenagers on postcards to their best friends, with a seeming belief that all heartaches can somehow be resolved with a handful of verses and a chorus that makes your heart hiccup.” BBC Music
“’Endearing’ is the key word that comes to define 2010’s landmark Crazy for You; while most of the guitar-based indie pop that’s made waves over the past few years has been characterized by scenester antagonism and attempts to fit in (Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, Beach Fossils), this record is carefree and instantly likable– even if it doesn’t seem to care what you think of it.
Judging by last year’s show this will be a perfect way to say hello to the summer, in the company of one of the music world’s most life-affirming outfits.
Stayed tuned for sneak previews of tracks from the hotly anticipated follow up record!
