Best Coast – “Boyfriend” & “Our Deal”

Listening to Best Coast, it’s very apparent that Bethany Cosentino is a west coast native (the “best coast”). Her sun-baked songs are indisputably the product of someone fond of ’60s beach pop and surf rock, but she filters those sounds through a screen of lo-fi fuzz.  Unfortunately, an unfulfilling stay in New York City was the impetus for her starting Best Coast – as an ode to the Californian home she was missing.  After spending the last year or so releasing a string of singles and EP’s, her full-length debut, Crazy For You, is finally coming out this month.  Over the course of the album, Cosentino pines for a boy she obviously loves, but he clearly has different ideas about their relationship.  On “Our Deal”, her wounded wail channels Patsy Cline: “I wish you would tell me/How you really feel/But you’ll never tell me/Cuz that’s not our deal.” “Boyfriend” expresses similar sentiments: “I’d love him to the very end/But instead he’s just a friend/I wish he was my boyfriend.”

Crazy For You is out 7/29 on Mexican Summer.
