Baltimore duo Beach House (Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally) are releasing a new album, 7 (titled as such because it's their seventh album), on May 11 via Sub Pop. Previously they shared the album's "Lemon Glow" (which was one of our Songs of the Week) and "Dive" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for "Dive." (They also released a lengthy statement about the album.) Now they have shared the album's third single, "Dark Spring," via a visually arresting video for the song. Zia Anger directed the black & white clip, which starts with the camera, seemingly led by flashlights, finding a house. Inside there are quick images of Legrand and Scally, as well as other visuals timed well to the song. Musically, this is Beach House fully embracing their shoegazing side and the results are glorious. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

In a press release Anger says making the video was "a very organic thing made with a lot of people (who are also filmmakers), that I love and trust. An anomaly in process." 

Beach House put out two albums in 2015: Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars, both via Sub Pop. In 2017 they released a B-sides and rarities compilation, fittingly titled B-Sides and Rarities, also via Sub Pop.
