Bethenny Cosentino and her bandmate Bobb Bruno describe their career so far in these lyrics from “Last Year” off their new album: “What a year this day has been / What a day this year has been.” It has certainly been a whirlwind for the duo, who went from unknowns to indie superstars in about one minute after extensive music-blog buzz in 2010.
Their sophomore album The Only Place came out just days ago and we’ve been streaming it on Spinner for the past while. Without hearing from Cosentino or Bruno, it’s easy to tell that this is an album about missing home and finding yourself despite other people trying to define you. Recently, Last.FM got a chance to interview Best Coast. The band gives more insight into the album’s themes, how their sound has developed, and how hard it is to find somebody who will commit to a 6-month tour away from home.
