Baltimore’s own Beach House have just released the video for “Lazuli”–the second single off of their fourth album, Bloom. The song is classic Beach House: atmospheric, synth-heavy and dripping with mumbly-mouthed lyrics. The video is not! It features loads of special effects, Lady Gaga Born-This-Way-era intergalactic sets (complete with G.O.A.T) and JJ Abrams’ signature lens flares for fuck’s sake! This from a band who doesn’t want to do deals with car companies or (allegedly) be sold at Starbucks.
HIPSTERS! (I know, takes one to know one…)
