Here’s one more way to Beach House on the brain as summer starts. For the first time in three years, Beach House — the band — are set to release a new album. The swooning starlets of Baltimore’s music scene will release Depression Cherry on August 28, via Sub Pop Records.
The dream pop duo of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally amassed a big following with their last two releases, Bloom and Teen Dream. For the latest effort, the pair teamed up with Future Islands’ Chris Coady and went down to the Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana, to record a nine-track album that represents a “return to simplicity” with less reliance on live drums to provide the rhythm.
“With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies,” Beach House said in a press release. “Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.”
The band also announced a world tour, but a Baltimore gig isn’t officially among the dates. At least we’re still in the URL of their website.
