Californian surf-poppers Best Coast will play their first UK shows this May.
The pairing of Bethany Consetino, formally of Pocahaunted, and Bobb Bruno have been impressing us for a while with their bleached pop that’s explicit in its debt to California, but universal in its nostalgia for summer and love of too-catchy-to-be-human melodies.
The band will release their debut album this year – to find out more, read our New Talent interview with Beth. Oh, and make sure you download the brilliant ‘When I’m With You’, which previously came out as a single on Black iris, and is now being given away as a free download. You can also watch the creepy video over here.
