indie darling bethany cosentino of best coast has shown plenty of sparkle in the vocal department but has come up short in the lyrics department which have merely been relegated to expressing her need for getting blazed in sunny summer weather while surrounded by maine coons and her boyfriend.
cosentino has lent her vocals to “when will i feel love”, a song and video aimed at raising awareness of human trafficking in europe and asia powered by black iris and mtv exit, mtv’s global anti-trafficking campaign.
the song is a piano and vocal pop ballad thats fit for mainstream, chart topping consumption. watch/listen to the track below:
ironically, the single, which drops jan 24, is already well past its sell-by date (just like the go! team); therefore entirely missing any and all impact of the message behind the song. at least bethany shines like california sunshine.
eagle rock dronewave weirdos pocahaunted disbanded earlier this year much to my kitteh dismay. main girl amanda brown seems to have decided to follow former bandmate bethany cosentino‘s footsteps to start a new band, perhaps due to bethany’s path to mega stardom with best coast.
this week, she put out a fresh video of a track from her forthcoming album “so unreal”. the song, featuring matrix metals, “make me over” has browns signature weird, trippy, verbed out, wave wavisms over indie-caliber electronic beats. the video, though severely lacking in felines, is colorful and sexy and psychedelic and totally hypnotic.
so far, la vampires are kicking this brutal hipsters’ ass.
