20:00 | Beach House is back. With a new album coming out in Spring 2018 callen '7'.
"7 is our 7th full-length record. At its release, we will have been a band for over 13 years. We have now written and released a total of 77 songs together."
Throughout the process of recording 7, their goal was rebirth and rejuvenation. They wanted to rethink old methods and shed some self-imposed limitations. In the past, they often limited our writing to parts that we could perform live. On 7, Beach House decided to follow whatever came naturally. As a result, there are some songs with no guitar, and some without keyboard. Basically, they let their creative moods, instead of instrumentation, dictate the album's feel.
Thematically, this record often deals with the beauty that arises in dealing with darkness; the empathy and love that grows from collective trauma; the place one reaches when they accept rather than deny.
At their best creative moments, they felt they were channeling some kind of heavy truth, and they sincerely hope the listeners will feel that.
