Beach House shows are always near-epileptic affairs, and their Friday night gig at New York Citys Webster Hall was no different, but what made staring at glowing pyramids and flashing strobes well worth the potential convulsions was the Baltimore-Md.-based band unveiling a brand spanking new song.
They teased the still-untitled tune at a festival gig in Singapore, but now TwentyFourBit has just posted a video of Alex Scally laying down some incredibly thick, droning guitar before Victoria Legrand bellows out that sweeping, contralto vocal in a way thats become increasingly distinct in the last year that their latest, best-of-list making LP Teen Dream has been on our hard drives and Technic decks. Unless you live in the UK, youre only chance to catch them live will be at Sasquatch! since they’ve recently announced plans to returning to the studio and presumably record their fourth, still-untitled full-length. Tour dates are listed below.
