Video: Best Coast – The Only Place

We would venture to guess that most Californians couldn’t tell you that their official state song is I Love You, California – a nearly 100-year-old tune. It seems that it may be time for the Golden State to go with something a bit more modern and edgy, especially given that Oklahoma crowned The Flaming Lips’ Do You Realize as their state song back in 2009. With that in mind, we’d like to make the case for The Only Place, the title track from Best Coast’s sophomore album. The jangly surf-garage-pop tune is a giant love letter to Cali, with lyrics that extol the simple virtues of living there (We’ve got the ocean, got the babes / Got the sun, we’ve got the waves) while also wondering why would you’d want to live anywhere else.

Bethany Cosentino & Co., who kick off their North American summer tour with a high profile appearance at the first annual Metallica-curated Orion Festival in Atlantic City on June 24, released recently this music video for the track. Let’s check it out…
