Best Coast – Crying (Roy Orbison Cover) (ft. Snacks The Cat)

Crying (Roy Orbison Cover ft. Snacks The Cat)

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard new material from Bethany Cosentino, aka Best Coast, but I think the music world will go on just fine thanks to little surprises like this. The surfy-vintage-pop-rocker takes on “Crying”, the beautifully somber classic ’60s track originally by rock legend Roy Orbison. Though not as heavy-handed as the original — it’s got Cosentino’s signature sweet, lo-fi shagginess — the cover still shows a good dose of tender yearning and romanticism. Cry to (or fall in love with?) it above.
