Best Coast Announces Tour, New EP

This summer, L.A.’s dreamy beach babes Best Coast are setting out on a North American tour with the likes of Lovely Bad Things, Guards, Bleached and Belle & Sebastian. The duo, Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno, will be performing material from a soon-to-be-released EP.

“There’s one song that’s a very standard, Best-Coast poppy jam; it was really influenced by Blondie,” Consentino told MTV. “There’s two slow songs, one of the slow songs is very Mazzy Star influenced, the other one is kinda heavy, a little bit like the Jesus and Mary Chain. And we got a Taylor Swift inspired song. Apparently I’m the Taylor Swift for stoners; that’s pretty tight.”

For the time being, you can stream a 7” that the band released for Record Store Day on YouTube. Check out the A-side tune “Fear My Identity,” as well as Best Coast’s upcoming tour dates below.
