Beach House have posted their video for Drunk In LA.
Directed by Sonic Boom, it’s the latest track from the 7 album to get an official promo. “7 was co-produced by Sonic Boom aka Peter Kember,” the duo remark. “We had a lot of fun with him throughout the process, and he helped us remember that any idea is welcome in a recording environment.”
“While mixing the record with Alan Moulder in London, we were out having dinner and Pete mentioned an idea for a video where the viewer is always looking up from the ground. This became the Drunk in LA video. When he sent it to us, we complimented and commented on the trippy, dreamlike nature of the video and he wrote that it was essentially just a day in his life.”
The director has also remixed Black Car; ‘it feels like a different song’, they continue on this. “Focused largely on voice and arpeggio. It feels like a poem this way, and the minimal treatment highlights the lonesome quality of the song.”
