As always, Mark Hoppus is right.
Spring is here! … or is it? In Sweden, we’ve had a loooong winter (about six months or so), so I’m longing for spring more than ever. I want the grass to get greener, I want the sun to shine more often, I want to see some fucking green leaves. Apparently (according to the weather forecast), it’s supposed to get warmer by next week. Today it snowed, though, so I try not to get too excited about anything.
However, during this time of the year I try to focus on music that I associate with spring and summer. It makes me happy and hopeful, which is always a good thing. Today I’ve been listening to Best Coast. They’re a surf pop band, which pretty much guarantees you’ll crack a smile while listening to them. I’m very fond of their production. It has a garage-y touch to it. Feels very simple and light; perfect spring music!
My favorite Best Coast song so far is probably Our Deal, from the album Best Coast, which by the way has a lovely album cover:
