Beach House announce new album + tour + release new song

Beach House released a new visualizer video for their second single “Dive”, following the brilliant "Lemon Glow".

01 “Dark Spring”
02 “Pay No Mind”
03 “Lemon Glow”
04 “L’Inconnue”
05 “Drunk In LA”
06 “Dive”
07 “Black Car”
08 “Lose Your Smile”
09 “Woo”
10 “Girl Of The Year”
11 “Last Ride”

“We wanted to rethink old methods and shed some self-imposed limitations,” Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand write. “In the past, we often limited our writing to parts that we could perform live. On 7, we decided to follow whatever came naturally. As a result, there are some songs with no guitar, and some without keyboard. There are songs with layers and production that we could never recreate live, and that is exciting to us. Basically, we let our creative moods, instead of instrumentation, dictate the album’s feel.”
