“We never really do acoustic or unplugged things,” says Bethany Cosentino, the mastermind behind Best Coast. So it’s all the most exciting that an acoustic clip of the band, which just released its sophomore album, The Only Place, has surfaced.
Part of a Rhapsody session that included the songs “How They Want Me To Be” and “Last Year,” the just-released “No One Like You” video shows Cosentino and musical partner Bobb Bruno playing the heartbreaker of a tune outside of a park and completely acoustic, but without losing any of the intensity of the album version.
It’s not the first time a band has surprised us with an unplugged session, however. Here are some of our all-time favorites.
Nirvana’s “The Man Who Sold The World.”
The Rolling Stones’ “Love In Vain”
Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World”
Florence and the Machine’s “Shake It Out”
