A couple of weeks ago, some spurious online survey declared Bournemouth to be the happiest place to live in Britain. Whether or not that’s true, who cares, but there’s certainly something about Bos Angeles which suggests smiles are happening. And not just the smirk that accompanied the choosing of their name. Apparently they met whilst selling ice cream on Bournemouth beach, and they’re still keeping things vaguely beachy with surf-inflected lo-fi indie rock that they describe as ‘Joy Division meets Wild Nothing’. Now that does point you in the right direction, but there’s no traces of rain-flecked gloom here - they’re from Bournemouth after all.
