Check Out: Wavves & Best Coast “Got Something For You”


This time of the year brings about the best in everyone. Your mother attempts to be sane, your father starts taking naps, and your brothers or sisters typically seem enthused to hang out. Hey, it even brings bands together! For couples, it’s a time to both a.) cuddle up and watch Chris Columbus movies and b.) send out personalized Christmas cards. We don’t know what’s on the tube for Bethany Cosentino (of Best Coast) and Nathan Williams (of Wavves), but they’ve definitely set the bar high for couples hoping to make a dent with their holiday cards.

The two just issued a new holiday-themed single. Titled “Got Something For You”, the Christmas jingle sounds like a lo-fi burner that’ll sound fitting for every alt kid’s house party this December. (Take note, Bucktown kiddies.) There are bells, there are “woos”, and there’s buzz. Don’t go apeshit, but it’s for Target. (GASP!) Yes, the single is part of a holiday compilation that includes songs by Guster, Bishop Allen, Natalie Hemby, Jenny O., and more! You can download it for free starting November 28th, but you can stream it now here.

If that wasn’t exciting enough Best Wavves plan to tour together next year, too. Update: Thanks to Spin, you can find their joint tour dates below:
