With singles This Is Real, When I’m With You and the much-touted Boyfriend, LA trio Best Coast made indie fans sit up and take note long before their debut album in July 2010.

Comprising lead singer and songwriter Bethany Cosentino (Pocohaunted), multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno, and drummer Ali Koehler (Vivian Girls), they trade in Wavves-esque scuzzy, lo-fi surf pop, with Cosentino’s lazy-yet-precise vocals add to the endearing simplicity of her lyrics and songwriting – both, ultimately, a paean to stoner Californian beach life.

Crazy For You, released in July last year, saw the band heralded as the best new music by NME, Guardian Music and Pitchfork, amongst others. Summer Is Forever, a split EP with Wavves, was made available exclusively to fans on their US tour together in January.

Support comes from Spectrals.
