Songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Bethany Cosentino and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno formed Best Coast in Los Angeles in 2009. California Nights is their third full-length album. Influences for the band include surf rock, 1960's girl groups, The Beach Boys and much more. Those influences and Best Coast's own take on them combine to create their sound. Their songs evoke the feeling we've come to associate with west coast music. That appealing vibe continues on California Nights.
