“Best Coast are providing an amazing advert for dropping out, having mad crushes and doing very little other than getting high.” - NME

Popfrenzy are very excited to be bringing Best Coast to Australia this summer.

Best Coast, the musical endeavor by perennially cool Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno, sounds the way music sounds when it comes over the beach from the parking lot… Combining the sophisticated chill of a New York City winter with the girlish, laid back romance of California in the summertime. Drawing inspiration from '60s surf rock and girl groups, Best Coast's noisy lo-fi sound gives a nod to contemporaneous acts like Wavves, the Vivian Girls and Brilliant Colors; yet Best Coast have shot straight to the top of the pile – with great songs and immense charm setting them apart.

This year, Cosentino made a summer single for Converse (a collaboration with Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij and rapper Kid Cudi) and added to Best Coast a full-time drummer, ex-Vivian Girl Ali Koehler.

The first time to our shores, this tour is set to be one of the best and most summery of the 2010-2011 Australian summer.
