Throwback Thursday: Boyfriend // Best Coast

‘Boyfriend’ is my personal favourite of all of Best Coast’s amazing songs. I knew there would be some serious obsessing over this band when I first heard my brother blasting it through the speakers.

It’s such an easy song to relate to – the words are powerfully engendered through the vocals which are the embodiment of heartbreak. ‘Boyfriend’ is a song full of unrequited love; stirring up those laughable memories of sleepless nights dreaming about the one I can’t have.

Bethany Cosentino combines her hypnotic voice with lyrics so simple that they convey the most ineffable tragedy ever spoken of: ‘I’d love him til the very end but instead he is just a friend’. Released in 2011, this song is still relatable, relevant and incredibly catchy.
