Best Coast’s new album might tip you off that they’re from California

Best Coast's new album might tip you off that they're from California

In their bid to be the most ultra-California band since The Beach Boys, Best Coast are back! With a new album named California Nights! The new album, their third, drops May 5 via Harvest Records and will feature songs called “Sitting in Traffic,” “Still Sitting in Traffic 40 Minutes Later,” and the single “Oh My God, It’s 8:00 PM, Why Is It Bumper to Bumper on the 101.” Classic California night songs.

I kid! I kid! Usually traffic does not go till 8 PM here. (Just last Tuesday when it made me late to an audition.) The real magic of California Nights can be evidenced in the lovely little video below, directed by Adam Harding. Fun fact: Starting April 7, Best Coast are teaming up with record stores to allow fans to pre-order the album on vinyl and receive an exclusive 10-inch with three tracks from the release. And of course, to celebrate the release, singer/songwriter/guitarist Bethany Cosentino and guitarist Bobb Bruno will head out on the road on an upcoming tour.
