I feel like talking to people who don’t tour, when you talk about touring – obviously we’re super blessed and very lucky to be doing what we do – but there are so many weird things that could never happen anywhere else. When I talk to people who don’t tour they look at me like I’m being bratty and complaining about this job that I have. It’s not that! It’s the fact that when I’m home I can exercise every day, I can cook myself good meals, then when I’m on the road for a long time it’s like, “There’s a Subway. I guess I’m eating a bowl full of lettuce because I don’t eat McDonalds.”

Don’t get me wrong, I listen to tons of pop music and all the music that really inspires Best Coast is very straightforward ’50s and ’60s pop music, but I’ve been listening to R&B and rap since I was a kid. I grew up in L.A. It’s part of the culture. I listen to anything.
