Best Coast formed in 2009 by Bethany Coentino and Bob Briuno in Los Angeles.
Bethany had been around the music scene at a very young age. She began her music career at age 15, inspired by artists such as Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan.
She started a band with her friend Amanda Brown called "Pocahaunted". At one point they opened up for Sonic Youth.

Bethany left the band to pursue creative writing at "Eugene Land Liberal Arts" in New York City. After her second semester, she realize that there is nothing like the sunny West Coast. She dropped out and moved back home.

She got back together with Bob and they began to record some new music at his home studio. The duo released their debut album "Crazy For You. The album received a lot of buzz and became a mainstream success in July 2010. The band gained more popularity after touring in 2011.

Best Coast then released the album "The Only Place" in May of 2012. They recorded at Capital Records in Los Angeles. This album really showed their talent in many ways.
On October 22, 2013 Best Coast came out with an EP titled "Faded Away' produced by Wally Gagel, inspired by Mazzy Star kind of tones.

On May 5, 2015 the duo released their most recent studio album "California Nights" also recorded by Wally Gagel.

Best Coast has such a unique sound, a mixture between 60s garage surf punk and girl groups.
