If you’re the type of high-minded individual I like to imagine reads this blog, you’ve probably already heard the new Beach House single “Lazuli.” No matter.. I love it and I’m going to post it anyway.
It’s the second track from the Baltimore duo’s upcoming fourth album Bloom. Much like “Myth” before it, “Lazuli” takes the dream pop formula Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally perfected on Teen Dream and pushes it to new heights. The tiny synth intro belies the wash of emulated strings, soaring background vocals and chiming guitar that follows:
Bloom will see release May 15th, but the single will be available as a blue opaque vinyl 7″ this Saturday as part of Record Store Day.
