Beach House: "Lazuli"
Beach House has not come out with an album since 2010's stellar Teen Dream, but I'm sure none of us have forgotten about them. This week they dropped a new single off of their forthcoming album, Bloom, releasing May 15th on SubPop. "Lazuli" opens up with a reminder of where Beach House came from: a steady, bright synth line that will instantly make itself recognizable. About twenty seconds in, the duo's maturity shows as a wave of thick, dense production envelopes us, comforts us, opens before us into a milky dream-pop serenade.
