Best Coast is an American indie rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2009. The band consists of duo Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno, with several drummers having joined the band for live performances, most notably Vivian Girls drummer Ali Koehler.
Bethany Cosentino was no stranger to the stage when she began working on recordings with Bobb Bruno. A former child actress, Cosentino had started writing songs in her teens, and had garnered a strong online following by the time she was 17 thanks to a handful of squeaky-clean pop tunes she made available on her MySpace page under the nom de teen pop Bethany Sharayah. The band’s music is often categorized under the subgenres of surf, garage rock, and lo-fi.
