Inspired by such bands as the Beach Boys, Mazzy Star and My Bloody Valentine, Los Angeles duo Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno have consistently delivered a fresh spin on lo-fi pop since they formed Best Coast in 2009. “California Nights” is the kind of song I imagine countless L.A. film students would loop over their demo reels or something (cue the band’s own music video here). The eponymously titled album is a great listen, but “California Nights” is a standout for me. Bethany’s voice simply soars! If you’re looking for a great summer single, give this Best Coast track a shot.
