Best Coast is an indie surf-pop band that originated in 2009 in Los Angeles, California, that has put together some seriously enjoyable tracks. Comprised of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno, the duo boasts a fresh sound, upbeat tempo, and a strong collection of songs. I first stumbled upon the indie band in 2010 while looking for new music on the internet. Upon first listen, I was hooked with the band’s original sound and upbeat vibe. Here is a look at five of the best songs by Best Coast yet, and see if you agree.
“Boyfriend” is a cheerful, upbeat track that has a bubbly, happy tempo, spot on vocals, and seriously catchy instrumental accompaniment. This is one of those songs that you cannot listen to without it lifting up your mood. I cannot resist the memorable beat of this song, and sing and dance along every time it comes on my mp3 player.
“Dreaming My Life Away”
Another great song by Best Coast is “Dreaming My Life Away.” This song has a mellow vibe that can easily be relaxed to. The vocals and melody of this song are beautifully presented, and the sound is simply atmospheric. “Dreaming My Life Away” is definitely one of the surf pop band’s best songs to date.
“No One Like You”
“No One Like You” is a beautiful song by Best Coast. This song features the exquisite vocals of Bethany Consentino with a relaxed, chilled out tempo, and a lovely melody. A bit different from many of the bands other songs, “No One Like You” is a great addition to their song collection.
Another song that captured my attention immediately is Best Coast’s remake of Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon.” Best Coast’s version adds a hip edge to the classic, while upholding the song’s integrity. At first, the song is nearly unrecognizable, until the first word is sung. I absolutely adore this remake of Stevie Nick’s eternally classic tune.
“Let’s Go Home”
Finally, “Let’s Go Home” is another solid track from Best Coast. This high energy song has a memorable melody, story telling lyrics, an upbeat tempo, and more. I cannot listen to this track without feeling my mood lift, and my foot tapping along to the infectious beat.
