Here we have a new video from Buzzworthy favorites Best Coast, and it's another grainy and gorgeous clip. But this time, for Best Coast's song "Boyfriend."
Like many of the tracks on Best Coast's debut album, Crazy For You, "Boyfriend" is a hazy and romantic song that incorporates elements of surf, punk and vintage girl-group sounds, along with singer/guitarist Bethany Cosentino's melancholic and direct lyricism.
In this heart-string-tugging video, Best Coast plays house band for a "Sweet Fifteen" party in the park, soundtracking the blossoming love between two teens. It's the perfect visual for its strangely innocent and sentimental music.
In a nice juxtaposition, the song sticks to generalities (sunsets, waiting by the phone, general longing for a particular guy to be her boyfriend) while the video is immersed in detail, with everything from party snacks to the "Sweet Fifteen" guest list documented and accounted for.
Check out Best Coast's "Boyfriend" below. Crazy For You is out now, and you definitely need it in your life.
