Beach House share “Black Car” video

Following excellent reviews and a Top 20 UK chart entry for their new album 7, released last month via Bella Union, Beach House have shared a mysterious new video for the track “Black Car”. Director Alistair Legrand takes the dark and atmospheric track, which rides an undulating bassline along a building, arrhythmic pulse, and delivers a gorgeously shot black and white visual for the song. Watch below…

Beach House’s massive worldwide tour resumes next month, reaching the UK for the below dates. A full list of Beach House’s international live dates can be found on their website.

7 is one of the best-reviewed albums of the year, earning Beach House “Best Albums of 2018 (So Far)” placements from the likes of Stereogum (#1), Rolling Stone and Billboard. Pitchfork gave 7 “Best New Music” status with an 8.9/10 review while The Guardian stated in its 4 star review that “the sounds are glorious.”

Critical acclaim for 7, out now via Bella Union in the UK/Europe and Sub Pop in the US:

“Beach House add details that make the songs transcend formula… The sounds are glorious.” The Guardian – 4 Stars ****

One of the century’s most enduring indie bands, their specialness has always been apparent.” Evening Standard – 4 Stars ****

“On this seventh album, Beach House add experimentalism to their woozy, beautiful tunes…. Their are genuine moments of revelation… Wonderful stuff.” The Sun – 4 Stars ****

“Beach House are finally embracing all of their creative moments, which have inevitably challenged them to become better artists.” The i Paper – 4 Stars ****

“More a subtle restyling than a full–on reincarnation, the soft–edged weightlessness, sumptuous tones and gauzy vocals still instantly recognisable on songs such as ‘Woo’ and the drop dead gorgeous ‘Dive’.” Uncut – 7/10

“The Baltimore duo have somehow gifted us their masterpiece, and though the rain outside has now stopped, new heavens have opened.” Clash – 9/10

“Vast, hypnotic, beautiful… An exciting and essential album of 2018.” Louder Than War – 8/10

“Beach House return with one of their finest records to date, loaded with infectious, immersive melodies… Few can create such dreamy, melancholic yet pop–tinged worlds, as this duo.” Long Live Vinyl – 8/10

“While still unmistakably the work of Beach House, 7 is arguably their freshest sounding and texturally–rich set since 2010’s breakthrough Teen Dream.” London In Stereo

“Beach House continue to finesse their sound on this, their seventh album, a record that finds the duo expanding their cinematic bent.” The Observer

“A musical evolution for the Baltimore duo…” Financial Times

“Beach House have become one of indie’s most dependable acts, and on 7 that continues….” DIY 

“Beach House are remarkably consistent, their woozy dream pop always finds a way to take up whichever space it inhabits.” Crack – 7/10

Beach House prevously shared an immersive video for “Dark Spring”, the opening track from the LP which can be viewed below…
