BEST Coast is back after the tremendous success of debut Crazy For You in 2010. Second album The Only Place will be dropped on the 5th of May, but while we wait for what seems like an eternity for May to pop it’s head around, the band have graciously released the title track for the album, available for free. Thanks guys.
The Only Place has a fleshed out sound compared to the simplistic formula of guitar + drum machine on Crazy For You, with a real drummer behind the sticks this time, a fuzzy bass guitar to help beef up the layers, and what appears to be the addition of keys to help create the thickest sounding Best Coast track yet.
As expected the song is about living by the beach and enjoying the sun, but with Best Coast it’s a nice change after the debut was full of teenage love and teenage heartbreak.
