Critical acclaim for Depression Cherry, out now on Bella Union:

“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 ****

“Beach House have never demanded attention but they are capable of moments of such hypnotic beauty that they always pay back any they are given.” The Sun – 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

“Both delicate and sophisticated. The echoey vocals hit on fleeting passions (Levitation) and high-flying wonder (Space Song), while cleverly integrating influences from retro 60s pop (PPP) to the celestial crooning of 80s faves The Cocteau Twins (Days Of Candy). Contemplative and soothing.” The Mirror – 4 Stars ****

“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)

“Minimal beats, carefully chosen guitar lines, dreamy keyboards and Victoria Legrand’s even more dreamy voice… Exquisite.” Sunday Times

“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.” Monocle

“Legrand has a whispering hypnotism in her singing throughout this record… It doesn’t demand attention but gently lures you into the dreamy Beach House world.” Gay Times – 4 Stars ****

Depression Cherry is a great example of a band hanging on to their trademark sound and managing to create something fresh with it.” Q

“Beach House are the sort of band for whom the terms ‘ethereal’ and ‘dream-pop’ were invented, and their fifth album does not disappoint on either score.” Shortlist

“Legrand and Scally have perfected a dreamy psychedelic pop that rules with an iron fist, buried deep within a velvet glove.” London In Stereo
