Best Coast: The hit lo-fi, indie sound of Los Angeles-based band Best Coast harkens back to heydays of surf and garage rock. Their musical style perfectly compliments their image as laid back, sometimes humors, West Coast youths as displayed on tour dates and in music videos. They first came into the public eye in 2009 with the release of their 7", Make You Mine, and have created quite a buzz in the mainstream music world with their debut album, Crazy for You. As Best Coast's career continues to escalate, they can be found on the tail end of 2011 tour dates across the US, UK, and Europe.

The story of Best Coast revolves around frontman Bethany Cosentino, a former child actress turned pop musician who actually turned down record deals as a teenager. After going to school in New York, Consentino moved back to Los Angeles and co-formed the band Pocahaunted, where she met Bobb Bruno, and built a reputation on local tour dates. The duo began working on a side project based on a love of '60s surf rock, and thus Best Coast was born. Best Coast soon released a number of 7"s and the EP Where the Boys Are, the latter of which caught the attention of a few critics and music magazines. The publicity was enough to get Best Coast a record contract, and the duo soon brought in former Vivian Girls drummer Ali Koehler as a full time member.

Best Coast's debut album, Crazy For You, was incredibly well received and has audiences wondering what the group has in store for their next record, which is currently in progress. In the meantime, audiences can catch Best Coast on their 2011 tour dates, which will be in the US until August 19. After that, they'll head to Europe until August 26, when they'll play a number of UK music festivals, including Reading and Leeds.
