Beach House fans rejoice!
Following their recent LP released earlier this year, 7, comes a couple of B-side tracks as delicate and well-produced as Beach House has ever been.
Seldom can artists drop tracks that didn’t make the full album that still amaze and excite. “Alien” is a heavier track with a bit more noise, but it is Beach House at their absolute best. The ambient vocals and dynamic guitar makes for an unforgettable set of lost tracks.
At this point, I can’t wait for a Beach House release that doesn’t top a previous drop, but I’m not complaining.
Take a listen to “Alien” and watch the mesmerizing music video (directed by San Charoenchai) below:
