Photos: Best Coast – Debaser, Malmo

At the end of December, State threw on its warm jacket and slid across roads of ice to Malmo to catch summer melody-peddlers Best Coast in the almost perfect Debaser venue. Seeking protection against the elements outside, we were given a short, cheery set of A-B-C guitar pop.

Some of the set seemed a bit perfunctory despite the beachy sounds and crowd favourite ‘Boyfriend’ was thrown in with no special mention. Still, we weren’t left wanting for songs about boys, girls, pot and the odd darker segue and all with that veneer of a teenage approach to love, life and guitar chords.

Photographer Jakob Bekker-Hansen captured some images of the show.

    Best Coast aren’t much of a live band. Every song sounds the same and the lack of harmonies that really makes them special on record is sadly missing.
