Treasure Island Music Festival 2012 Artist Spotlight – Best Coast

If deciding what direction to take on her band’s second studio album was in any way problematic for Bethany Cosentino, you certainly wouldn’t know it. Hers is, after all, a genre with a pretty short shelf life. Catchy, hook-filled pop songs about boys and the beach and being slightly mental (probably something to do with the much referenced ‘weed’) are all well and good on album number one, but many bands with a similar sound might have wavered under the question of how to make ‘the difficult second album’ not so difficult…But Cosentino’s transition here is fairly seamless; the answer to the aforementioned problem simple: strip away the fuzz and distortion, turn down the general happiness levels by about a notch and a half, and actually sing. And lo and behold, we have The Only Place – still ridiculously catchy.
