Beach House are just a littler over a week away from releasing their anticipated seventh studio album 7. So far, the dreamy duo have dropped 3 beautifully textured songs from the LP. Each one so far has hinted at the dark, layered direction they’ve opted to go in this time around. Now, the band have just dropped one of the best singles so far, “Black Car.”
“Black Car” is a song that uses the key components of what makes Beach House great, but twists them into new, more darkly lit places. It uses space, repetition, and hypnotic layers of synth to lay the groundwork for Victoria Legrand to wrap her voice around. Based on all the songs released thus far, 7 is shaping up to be a pretty special release. And, this writer can personally attest to this as he saw Beach House play the first stop on their current tour just two nights ago. The new songs sound thrilling live (and great on record). Coincidentally, “Black Car” made its live debut as the opening song of their set, and now you can hear it too.

7 is out next Friday, May 11. Pre-order it here.
