Working with Ray-Ban’s Raw Sounds project, onetime Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr racked up a coterie of his favorite indie artists to write songs based on a couple of inspiring works of art – photos, songs, poetry, you name it. One of the bands Marr picked to make musical gold out of his random reference points was California garage-pop trio Best Coast, who expertly wove one of Marr’s photos and guitar pieces into a great, lovelorn lo-fi anthem called “In Your Sleep.” Beth Cosentino’s sweet, yearning voice takes center stage as she laments falling in love with a guy who’s “so messed up” and her band jam out sunny, surf-y guitar. Check it out below.
