“Elegy to the Void” – Beach House

Beach House made the surprising release of their sixth album, Thank Your Lucky Stars, in October, just two months after gifting the world with Depression Cherry. In their wake, a lot of comparisons have been drawn and even more divisively, rankings of the two have split fans down the Thank Your/Depression Cherry line. While I thoroughly enjoy both, I’ve been listening to Thank Your Lucky Stars on repeat more often. So, I find myself more inclined to favor their latest tracks. Among them, “Elegy to the Void” is my favorite. It is certainly darker, lyrically and tempo-wise, yet the swell about mid-way through is worth working up to. Give the rest of the album a listen, too; it’s full of the duo’s continually stunning work.
