The sun-splotched California duo Best Coast will follow up their 2012 full-length LP The Only Place with something in between an EP and an LP. Fade Away contains seven new songs written by pop slackers Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno, who have worked together since the band’s 2010 debut Crazy For You.
“Everything in this band has worked out so organically that sometimes it scares me that something bad is going to happen,” says Cosentino in a press release. “I don’t even understand why this is happening. I made some songs, I put them up on the internet, and here I am now. I feel like the luckiest person in the world. If I wasn’t doing this, I don’t know what I would be doing.”
The release states that these new “faster-paced, energetic” songs were inspired by Mazzy Star, Patsy Cline, My Bloody Valentine “and Ambien.” Bruno and Cosentino are hoping to release a full album in the spring of 2014.
Check out the artwork, and the tracklist for Fade Away below. The mini-album includes the two songs previously released on their Record Store Day single, “Fear of My Identity” and “Who Have I Become.” Both songs feature Cosentino’s dad, Ricky, on drums.
