Listen: Beach House's "Dive"

Fresh on the heels of the magnificent Lemon Glow, Baltimore dream-pop outfit Beach House are back again, offering yet another peek into their new musical direction in the form Dive, a track that starts off closer to the lush, sublime mood the duo have always cultivated over the years, but interestingly veers off in exciting and unpredictable ways as it explodes into a profusion of thrumming guitar lines and thudding drums around 2:30 mark. Detailing the thought process behind 7, their upcoming seventh studio album set for release on May 11, Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally talk about how "we let our creative moods, instead of instrumentation, dictate the album's feel," and how "[t]hematically, 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." Have their gorgeous song a go below -
