Beach House share trippy ‘Drunk In LA’ video

The band have also shared a Sonic Boom remix of ‘Black Car’.

Beach House released their seventh album - suitably titled ‘7’ - earlier this year, and ahead of a handful of UK shows in support of it, have shared a new video and remix.

The band have shared a trippy new video for ‘Drunk In LA’ alongside a Sonic Boom remix of ‘Black Car’.

“7 was co-produced by Sonic Boom aka Peter Kember,” the pair say. “We had a lot of fun with him throughout the process, and he helped us remember that any idea is welcome in a recording environment (he played a drill on “Lemon Glow”).

“While mixing the record with Alan Moulder in London, we were out having dinner and Pete mentioned an idea for a video where the viewer is always looking up from the ground. This became the “Drunk in LA” video. When he sent it to us, we complimented and commented on the trippy, dreamlike nature of the video and he wrote that it was essentially just a day in his life.

“We have never had a remix, but we thought it would be cool if Pete did one. We really like the one he did for “Black Car,” because it feels like a different song, focused largely on voice and arpeggio. It feels like a poem this way, and the minimal treatment highlights the lonesome quality of the song. Hope you enjoy! Much Love.”
