Wichita sign Best Coast
Wichita Recordings are delighted to announce the signing of Californian duo Best Coast and the release of their debut album Crazy For You on 2nd August (formats CD / LP and DD).
Best Coast are 23-year old songwriter Bethany Cosentino and musical partner Bobb Bruno. Their "sun-kissed songs of love and longing" have been attracting much attention over recent months following a string of now sold-out 7” releases Stateside on the independent labels Group Tightener, Atelier Cuseaux, Art Fag, Black Iris, PPM and Eskuche.
None of the songs on Crazy for You have been previously released on earlier 7-inches. For the album’s sessions Cosentino brought in a collection of demos she had never sent to Bruno. “I wanted the record to be something completely fresh and new,” says Cosentino. “I just felt like my first record needed to be really special.”
Their LP was recorded at Black Iris, a studio in LA’s Echo Park neighbourhood, and produced by Lewis Pesacov of the bands Fool's Gold and Foreign Born. They play Cargo in London on 2 August.
