King of the Beach – Wavves
This has been one of my favourite songs for the last few months. Since I changed computers, it’s been my most played song, narrowly shading out Under Cover of Darkness. It has incredibly catchy lyrics, and are easy to remember as there aren’t too many but what is there packs a punch.
I saw these guys at Golden Plains, while blind drunk and in the middle of what turned out to be a violent smash-pit. Still this turned out to be one of the highlights of the festival for me. The next day, I made a crown out of the cardboard from a six-pack and had “King of the Beach” painted on it. It was awesome.
The film clip just adds to the enjoyment. Mainly because it is very youthful, a couple of late teenagers boys having a good time. It’s easy to relate to.
