Beth Consentino's band are playing three UK gigs
Best Coast landed in the UK yesterday (November 29) to play their three biggest headline shows in the country yet – with frontwoman Beth Cosentino explaining that she hoped her next musical step will be a special collaboration.
“I hope one day that he’ll reply to my tweets,” she said. “I tweet him all the time. I’d love to work with him – I’d drop anything and everything to work with Kanye. Although he might just want to work with Snacks [her pet cat].”
Cosentino, who tweets from Twitter.com/bestycoastyy, added: “I love the new Kanye West album, it really deserves all the praise it’s getting. The thing I like about him is that he’s really honest and says what he wants to say, I really respect that. Having this job and being in the public eye, it’s hard that people say shit you don’t like, he’s always like, ‘Fuck it’.”
The singer has a good track record when it comes to online collaborations. She recently worked with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo on a new song after getting in touch with him on the social networking site.
Best Coast play the Birmingham Glee Club tonight then London‘s Scala tomorrow.
