Listen To ‘Lemon Glow’, The New Beach House Song
A few days ago, Beach House, the famous Baltimore duo of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, have released a new song that should be included on their upcoming album, although not too much has been revealed about it yet, not even the title.
The new tune called ‘Lemon Glow’ sounds like a forgotten Tame Impala track, except that Victoria Legrand’s recognizable deep whisper is sprawling all over it. Accompanied by some hypnotic visuals, the song slowly progresses but instead of booming, it stagnates in a sort of haze and oscillating synth. The melody slowly lets a sweetness escape, and, as the title says, the glow becomes real after 4 minutes of this.The tone is rather melancholic and sensual, the style trippy and also very shoegaze and the lyrics quite poetic with puzzling word assemblages like ‘Candy-colored misery/The color of your mind’.
Beach House’s forthcoming album, which should be out sometime this spring via Sub Pop/Bella Union/ Mistletone, will follow their 2015 releases, ‘Depression Cherry’ and ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’, and last year’s ‘B-Sides and Rarities’.
Meanwhile, you can always submerge yourself in their 10th Anniversary reissue of their first album, ‘Devotion’, which includes 2 LP 180g gold cloud burst vinyl, a lyric poster hand written by Victoria Legrand among other goodies. So far, the band has not announced any dates except for a few festivals and two dates in Spain and Mexico City, but I would expect some dates this summer?
The funny thing is that the more I listen to the song, the more I am thinking about Tame Impala, but no, it’s really the new Beach House song.
