New Song Of The Day: Beach House – Black Car

Beach House’s new album, 7, is turning out to be one of the most hot-anticipated new releases of the month.

Now the band has offered up a fourth track from the album, titled Black Car.

Here’s the record company blurb:

Beach House have shared Black Car, a captivating new song from 7, their highly anticipated new album. The dark, atmospheric track rides an undulating bass line along a building, arrhythmic pulse of a drum beat.

7 is already earning Beach House some of the best reviews of the band’s career. Stereogum says of the album, “There are great bands that reinvent themselves with each new album, others that hit a sweet spot and stick with what works, and then there’s Beach House. Over their decade-plus career, some might argue that the Baltimore-based band has largely adhered to a formula, but with 7 — their excellent seventh album— it’s clear that the duo has been playing the long game.”  Pitchfork offers this, “The record is one of rebirth, and easily the Baltimore duo’s most apparent sonic departure since 2012’s Bloom.” And The FADER raves, “The result is a weird and thrilling record that not only stands as one of the year’s best, but suggests that when it comes to pushing the limits of what the “Beach House sound” can be, Scally and Legrand are just getting started.”

7 will be released May 11th via Sub Pop.
