Beach House have dropped a new video for ‘Drunk in LA’.
It’s a track from their seventh album, the appropriately titled ‘7’, which arrived back in May via Bella Union in Europe and Sub Pop in the US.
“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”),” the band explain.
“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.”
The follow-up to last year’s B-sides and Rarities compilation, ‘7’ will see the band in the UK later this year. They’ll play:
17 LONDON – Troxy
18 LONDON – Troxy
19 MANCHESTER – Albert Hall
