One day your speakers are providing you with immense satisfaction and what you perceive to be the best sound in town. Then, all of a sudden a subtle fuzz or crackle finds a home and next thing you know you’re searching online for a new sound system. I noticed that my speakers needed to be replaced in the last week or so and while Beach House’s new track Dive is not solely to blame, I… No stuff that, Beach House’s new track is solely to blame. Today’s Juice is the Baltimore duo’s second single off their forthcoming album entitled 7 and boy am I excited to see what else they have in store for us.
Now, some of you may find this statement blasphemous but I don’t think Beach House has ever sounded so damn good. There is just such an effortless magnificence to Dive that puts you in some kind of hypnotic trance. The BH patented organ begins the hypnosis and with only slight variations remains as a key ingredient in today’s Juice. With shoegaze sensibilities, Dive finds a comfortable medium between soothing and intense. I particularly like the guitar in Dive. Sparse one minute, sprightly the next. Play this song at a sensible volume and be sure to cop their new album when it drops May 11.
