In the perpetually bouncing, skating, blunt-smoking, laughing, crowd surfing, reverbed world of Best Coast and Wavves, over-thinkers, self-pitiers and gloomy types need not apply. The fact that Bethany Cosentino and Nathan Williams are a real-life couple only makes the story better.
The two met at the age of 17, spent a summer together, went their separate ways and then got back together. Nathan and Bethany, too, are among the most entertaining Twitter users out there.
The idea for this tour—was there just a hole in the schedule for both bands and you decided this would be a good thing to do now? So we get to spend a good chunk of time together, which is cool. Of course the potential downside to all this togetherness on the road is if there are disputes…. And… has it changed you? But not as hard as normal, She still thinks I do.
And Bethany, when Best Coast is out on the road, not with Wavves, are there after-parties?
I just have a couple more glasses of whiskey than she does before we watch Jersey Shore. So, you mentioned Jersey Shore. Because there is no music…. Although we were in a hotel the other night, and we caught the late Jersey Shore and they were having video premieres, they had like, a Sleigh Bells premiere and Nicki Minaj and Drake—at 3 in the morning! I guess we were. On the topic of that network, and since people have been talking about it, what do you think of Skins?
They should have just kept the UK version. I had sex and did drugs when I was a teenager. But he was basically living with me before he had officially moved in, he was always at my house, almost every time he was home from touring. I lived in San Diego before that, but when we were younger and we knew each other, her mom used to live in an apartment down the street, and I would come up. Yeah, it was in that LA Times piece that I read about how you guys would take the train back and forth….
But we are talking about buying houses across the street from each other. Mine will be the better one, and I get Snacks. If Wavves best coast dating services cat could talk, he would tell you guys some stuff. Who feeds him, who he really loves…. So in between the time you were first seeing each other and when you got back together, were you in touch? But then we started talking again when he started Wavves, he came to New York and we hung out.
Build him up only to tear him down, try and throw dirt on him…. Or at least we talked all the time, I always talked to him wherever he was on tour. I know you guys said that there is no Wavves best coast dating services competition here.
