Crazy For You, the debut album from Best Coast is a collection of maudlin and magical songs that approach relationships with a pureheart, a cloudy mind and pair of gas station sunglasses. Album opener and first single Boyfriend sets the tone perfectly – chiming guitars, Phil Spector-esque vocals and a melancholy, catchy-as-hell chorus drenched in harmonies.
Crazy for You 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. Cosentino’s beloved cat Snacks guest-stars on the album artwork.
