New Video from Best Coast ‘Heaven Sent’
Behold the exclusive #NeverHideNoise premiere of Best Coast‘s ‘Heaven Sent’ from her upcoming album ‘California Nights‘ – out May 5th!
Best Coast is 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 inNew 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.
After a string of 7-inch and cassette-only singles, the band signed to Mexican Summer, who issued the band’s debut, Crazy for You, in 2010. Crazy for You became an unexpected commercial success following Internet buzz surrounding the duo. Best Coast added a touring drummer, Ali Koehler of Vivian Girls, and spent much of 2011 on the road for festival appearances and tour dates. Best Coast’s sophomore effort, The Only Place, was released in 2012 and featured a cleaner sound than their previous releases. In 2013, the duo released an EP, Fade Away, and their third studio album, California Nights, is currently set for release on May 4, 2015.
Best Coast’s next release, an EP entitled Fade Away, was released on October 22, 2013 on singer Bethany Cosentino’s new label, Jewel City. In October 2013, the band produced a charity t-shirt for the Yellow Bird Project to raise money and awareness for the L.A. Animal Rescue. The shirt was launched at their Animal Rescue benefit concert, which took place at The Fonda Theatre on October 21, 2013. The duo toured with the Pixies in early 2014.
The duo have completed their third studio album, California Nights, currently set for release on May 5, 2015. It was recorded, like Fade Away, with Wally Gagel at his Wax Ltd studio. The album was completed in April 2014. Cosentino commented that artists such as The Go-Go’s, Gwen Stefani, and Sugar Ray influenced the album’s sound. The album was initially reported to be produced by Butch Walker. On March 10, 2015 the duo shared a lyric video for “Heaven Sent”, a cut off the LP.
