Baltimore duo Beach House have shared four new songs from forthcoming album Once Twice Melody; Runaway,' 'ESP,' 'New Romance' and 'Over and Over'.
The project is being released in four distinct “chapters”, with Chapter 2 from the 18-track album arriving last night. The next two parts of the follow-up to 2018’s 7 will arrive in the beginning of 2022.
Chapter 3 from dreampop duo Beach House is out January 19; and the full album release arrives on February 18.
The US pair formed in Maryland back in 2004 and consists of vocalist and keyboardist Victoria Legrand and guitarist, keyboardist, and backup vocalist Alex Scally.
Their self-titled debut album was released in 2006 to critical acclaim and has been followed by Devotion (2008), Teen Dream (2010), Bloom (2012), Depression Cherry (2015), Thank Your Lucky Stars (2015), B-sides and Rarities (2017) and 7 (2018).
Of the origins of the band name Scally said: "We’d been writing music, and we had all these songs, and then there was that moment where you say ‘what do we call ourselves?’ We tried to intellectualise it, and it didn’t work. There were different plant-names, Wisteria, that kind of thing. Stupid stuff. But, once we stopped trying, it just came out, it just happened. And it just seemed perfect."
