Listen: Best Coast Return With ‘I Don’t Know How’

Best Coast return with a new EP or “mini-album” on October 22nd called Fade Away, the first release on Bethany Cosentino’s Jewel City label. It’s a new burst of independence for the dynamic duo, which includes another album they’ll start recording in November for release next Spring. Today the duo return with new single “I Don’t Know How,” and everyone from the girl-pants indie kids to country fans are going to be singing this in their heads for the rest of the week.

The new songs reflect an increased confidence that Cosentino and her bandmate, multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno, gained in the three surreal years since their breakthrough album Crazy For You. Producing and mixing this time alongside Bethany and Bobb was Wally Gagel, who’s recorded over twenty iTunes Originals sessions, including one with Best Coast back in 2011.  

This new freedom led Cosentino to a faster-paced, energetic set of songs inspired by Mazzy Star, Patsy Cline, My Bloody Valentine and Ambien. “Everything in this band has worked out so organically that sometimes it scares me that something bad is going to happen.  I don’t even understand why this is happening. I made some songs, I put them up on the internet, and here I am now. I feel like the luckiest person in the world. If I wasn’t doing this, I don’t know what I would be doing.” – Bethany Cosentino.
