Summer — and with it a new Best Coast album — is quickly approaching. The Los Angeles (where else?) duo released their second single from the upcoming album California Nights today and it has a little more fire and a little less 60s-vibes than previous tracks. That said, the summertime nostalgia is still strong, and it’s hard not to feel a sunny optimism while listening.
The accompanying lyric video is a hammy karaoke throwback complete with “(GUITAR SOLO 16 BARS)”. No shortcuts (except those required by the karaoke video format) were taken in the recreation of the video, which features animated rosy-faced cherubs that arrive with each repetition of the chorus.
California Nights will be released May 4th, 2015.
