Best Coast admit to Klaxons ‘cat envy’

Cat lover Bethany Cosentino is jealous of the band's new album sleeve

Best Coast have admitted they are envious of Klaxons‘ feline-featuring cover for new album ‘Surfing The Void’.

Frontwoman Bethany Cosentino is a huge cat lover, and featured her own pet Snacks! on the cover of their debut album ‘Crazy For You’.

The animal also features on Wavves‘King Of The Beach’ which is fronted by her boyfriend Nathan Williams, and even has its own Twitter page.


However writing for The Guardian Cosentino admitted cats were her biggest inspiration and was jealous of Klaxons‘ sleeve, which feautures Jamie Reynolds’ Norwegian Blue Orphee.

“I’ve noticed it becoming a trend [of cat-featuring album covers],” she noted. “I kind of wish the Klaxons‘ album sleeve had been ours.”

She added: “I’d sooner talk about my cats than my music. In fact, the two things go hand in hand.”
