Best Coast’s new single “The Only Place” is an upbeat track to listen to with your friends on a sunny afternoon.
Frontwoman Bethany Cosentino sings: “We were born with sun in our teeth and in our hair / When we get bored we like to sit around, sit around and stare / At the mountains, at the birds, at the ocean, at the trees / We have fun, we have fun / We have fun when we please,” she sings. This ain’t Keats or Yeats, no. But gosh, it’s catchy.
The song is about living and loving California, where Cosentino is from. Though I don’t live there and it’s bitterly cold today I can certainly imagine it with this track.
