Best Coast is following up 2012’s widely liked and sometimes disputed The Only Place with a 7-song mini-album, Fade Away. The album arrives next month via frontwoman Bethany Cosentino’s label Jewel City, but before then, the duo has given us one of its unheard tracks.
I Don’t Know How starts off sounding like the Best Coast of yore. Before the first 10 seconds are up, Cosentino has already pouted, “I don’t know how to tell you I love you,” over muffled, serene guitars. But halfway through the track, the tempo kicks up and Consentino morphs into a swingin’ folk star sick of mourning some unattainable romance. Listen in, below.
