CURRENT: Beach House – “Sparks”

Not that this week needed anymore great new music (thank you, Miguel and Vince Staples), but we’ll take it! Beach House announced a while back that they have a new album coming out near the end of August, Depression Cherry. Now, the duo has unveiled the first single off the forthcoming disc, “Sparks.” After the glistening Bloom and the hazy Teen Dream, “Sparks” finds Beach House operating with a level of rawness we haven’t seen since their early material. As the guitars chime and create a velvet wall of sound, it becomes apparent that no matter the subtle shifts in sound, there are few contemporary bands so keenly aware of their place and status as Beach House.
