Beach House share “Drunk In LA” video

Soon to make their long–awaited UK live return with London and Manchester shows next month, Beach House have shared a video for “Drunk In LA”, one of the standouts from 7, the band’s critically acclaimed new album. The kaleidoscopic video was directed by the album’s co-producer Sonic Boom. Speaking of the collaboration the band said… 7 was co-produced by Sonic Boom aka Peter Kember. We had a lot of fun with him throughout the process, and he helped us remember that any idea is welcome in a recording environment (he played a drill on “Lemon Glow”). While mixing the record with Alan Moulder in London, we were out having dinner and Pete mentioned an idea for a video where the viewer is always looking up from the ground. This became the “Drunk in LA” video. When he sent it to us, we complimented and commented on the trippy, dreamlike nature of the video and he wrote that it was essentially just a day in his life.

Beach House have also shared a Sonic Boom remix of the album track “Black Car”… “We have never had a remix, but we thought it would be cool if Pete did one. We really like the one he did for “Black Car,” because it feels like a different song, focused largely on voice and arpeggio. It feels like a poem this way, and the minimal treatment highlights the lonesome quality of the song. Hope you enjoy! Much Love.”
