Watch: Beach House - “The Traveller” Video
Thank Your Lucky Stars and Depression Cherry Both Out Now via Sub Pop
Baltimore duo Beach House (Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally) put out two albums in 2015. They released Thank Your Lucky Stars in October, despite just releasing their last album, Depression Cherry, at the end of August, both via Sub Pop. Now the band has shared a video for Thank Your Lucky Stars cut "The Traveller." Jennifer Juniper Stratford directed the hypnotic video, which features trippy shots of a well-dressed woman with a suitcase. Watch it below.
Stratford is a media artist and the founder of Telefantasy Studios, which the press release describes as "an analog media lab dedicated to the creation of avant-garde television and experiments in video."
The press release also explained the techniques behind the video, saying it "was shot using an obsolete television camera and processed with a video synthesizer and a reconfigured broadcast mixer to create a realm outside of this dimension."
Here's our review of Thank Your Lucky Stars. Also read our 2015 interview with Beach House's Victoria Legrand about Depression Cherry.
