Everyone has pretty much agreed that Beach House‘s May release Bloom is one of the best albums of 2012, so it’s always a treat to get to experience that music in new forms. And now we have a video for the stand-out track “Lazuli,” directed by Alan Cordrell (who also directed the video for “Walk In The Park” off 2010’s Teen Dream).
One of the things I really like about this video is how the director was so purposeful in timing the movement in the video to the ups and downs of the song. No, there’s no full-on choreography or anything like that. Instead, it’s a much more subtle take, where the candles light just as the music swells. It reminds me of some of the movement in Kwes’ video for “Bashful“.
Watch for: eggs cracking in time with the vocals at 1:17.
Beach House also announced expanded dates for their “Frightened Eyes” tour, which you can check out here. It seems like they’re pretty much getting to all major cities, so make an effort to see them when they come through your part of the country.
