Best Coast's fall from grace has widely been told. She started out being a chill, fuzzybuzzy vibey band with perfect 'sun washed' songs 'reminiscent of a California that we've all dreamed of.' Then she basically tried 2 hard 2 'go mainstream' and be some sort of 'icon of the times', even though this era of 'pseudo-famous indie celebs' thinking they are anything more than a pin worm in the ass crack of cultural history. Anyways, she just ended up taking cash handouts from any brand who would offer and just ended up appealing to all of those loser girls who worship Tavi Gevinson and wear basic ass 'I'm going to a music festival' Urban Outfitters costumes every day.
This new song is very terrible, but more importantly, it begs the question:
SHOULD BEST COAST'S FRONT WOMAN BEFERNEE COSATEENO START TAKING HEROIN?
Heroin is a popular indie drug, [allegedly] utilized by DIIV's Zachary Cole Smith and his "heroin-chic" starlet Sky Ferreira. It gives them the 'indie' look', since they are breaking free from the consumer/corporatization of the indie scene. Everything just sounds 'too clean', like it was built to be branded or utilized in a car commercial. If there's one thing that will never be branded, it is heroin. Mountain Dew will never sponsor heroin. Music festivals will never hand out free samples of heroin. Maybe in a way, heroin is the only way to create authentic music.
Does this song sound like it needs heroin?
Do u only listen to DIIV now bc it feels like heroin?
Is heroin the only way to save indie?
Is Best Coast 'about to be out of the industry' with efforts like this?
Should she just apply for a job as manager of Urban Outfitters so that her wardrobe isn't completely useless, or should she sell it to a 'vintage store' to get $100 back for it all?
