Southern California duo Best Coast is friends Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno. The pair met nearly a decade ago through the LA music scene and shared passions for art, food and local culture. Best Coast released their debut album Crazy for You in the summer of 2010, and the critically-acclaimed, Jon Brion-produced follow up The Only Place in the summer 2012, which placed on both Spin and Rolling Stone’s Best of Albums of 2012 list. Their dedicated fan base continues to grow. With an impressive 100k Twitter followers, a simple tweet linked to a home recording of Rob Orbison’s “Crying” instantly reached 20k plays.
Best Coast remain one of the busiest rock bands around. The duo are gearing up for a U.S. tour this Spring with legendary rockers Green Day. Best Coast will then headline their own tour starting May 26. The upcoming dates will be the first chance to hear brand new songs from their newly recorded EP, release date coming soon.
And with Record Store Day just around the corner, it’s only fitting that Bethany and Bobb partake in the activities. With the backing of Clarks Originals, Best Coast will release a brand new 7″ “Fear Of My Identity,” available exclusively through participating indie stores. Record Store Day 2013 sees a perfect union of an iconic, long-standing brand like Clarks Originals and Best Coast, together celebrating vinyl and independent music.
