The song chosen for this second draft was “Boyfriend,” which in our humble opinion is not the most stellar Best Coast jam–sort of a whiny, droning ode to unrequited lust (yawn).
Curious listeners can check out the track at Havaianas Clothing's Facebook page– apparently the mashup is a promotional tool for the clothing company, known for
making graffiti scribbled flip-flops. Best Coast will be performing live at
one of the company's “pop up shops” in Los Angeles on Friday.
seem Lindstrom, who is known for creating pulsing, disco-infused
dance jams could only make the song worse, but this isn't the case.
The new song's “Dancing Queen” synths are accompanied by a four on the floor rhythm which takes the song's focus from a spoiled child of privilege bitching about how life isn't fair and unlocks its previously unseen camp value. Suddenly, the droniness takes on a spaced out hypnotic quality, perfect for dancing to while ingesting psychedelic drugs.
