Critical acclaim for Depression Cherry:

“Where most artists write songs that channel one feeling or emotional journey, Beach House build multiple mood layers into each track… Legrand’s voice is a gorgeous vapour trail, looping through the air and evaporating into the blue… These are songs that soak into you.”

The Telegraph – 5 Stars ***** (Album Of The Week)

“The Baltimore pair return to a sparser template with their graceful, nuanced fifth. By reducing the scope and rediscovering the value of nuance, Beach House end up sounding bigger and better than ever before.”

Uncut – 8/10

“A record on which every subtle chord shift and breathy sigh feels considered. By pairing down the drums and allowing themselves to play more quietly, the Baltimore duo somehow increase their impressive ability to sound like they’re whispering each song directly into your eardrum.”

The Guardian – 4 Stars ****

“As a dreamy mood-setter the nine songs work a treat… Beautiful, melancholy, meditative.”

Evening Standard – 4 Stars ****

“Luxuriant, ethereal, gauzy, intense, exquisite… The voice of Victoria Legrand suspended inside an artful matrix of hypnotic organ, guitar and slowly ticking percussion.”

Mail On Sunday – 4 Stars ****

“Fans will be spellbound… Depression Cherry pulls off the rare trick of stripping the duo’s sound back and embracing simplicity, while actually sounding more sophisticated and accomplished than their previous work.”

Record Collector – 4 Stars ****

“Yet again, Beach House make sadness sound endlessly alluring.”

Crack – 17/20

“Legrand and Scally have returned to the very basic machine patterns of their earliest records. The album standout is ’10:37′, with layered and chopped-up backing vocals that gently suggest Brian Wilson and R&B… If Depression Cherry suggests they are stuck in a groove, its a groove that is worth wallowing in.”

The Observer (Album of the Week)

“While the rooms got big, the songs have stayed tight, focused and fashioned from the most precious natural materials: haunting melody, heartbreaking harmony, ethereal choruses. There’s a subtlety with these songs that make this their finest record to date.”
