Beach House — the musical duo consisting of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally — has released their follow-up album to 2012′s Bloom a week early. Now streamable through NPR, Depression Cherry is set to arrive on August 28 via Bella Union (UK), Sub Pop (North America) and Mistletone (Australia and New Zealand). Beach House shares the following on the sound and direction of the album:
“In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.”
