If you picture California nights as being slow and hazy, then American indie-rock duo Best Coast’s third album California Nights is not for you. The record was inspired by artists including The Go-Go’s, Gwen Stefani, and Sugar Ray. With anthemic garage-band pop power ballads, one can see their musical inspirations shine through effortlessly.
The indie-rock duo, comprised of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno is receiving praise from critics everywhere, especially after their stunning performance at SXSW in May.
Of the new album, Cosentino told Rolling Stone,”This is the record that we’ve always wanted to make. I’m sure I’ll get sick of these songs at some point. But right now it feels like the universe is aligning.”
The music video for ‘Feeling Okay’ (my favourite song off their record) dropped last week. Check it out below!
