Beach House direct their own video for “Chariot” — watch

From the dream pop outfit's forthcoming B-Sides and Rarities release


    Beach House will release their B-Sides and Rarities collection on June 30th via Sub Pop/Bella Union. Among the 14 tracks are a pair of never-before-heard songs from the Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars sessions, “Baseball Diamond” and “Chariot”. The latter track was shared last month, and today its video has been revealed.

    Beach House’s own Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally directed the clip, which features a visual collage of found footage. Scenes of John F. Kennedy and Jackie Onassis play alongside images of Marilyn Monroe performing for the troops. There are also shots of airplanes soaring the skies and an old Western film. All of the footage is being screened for a silent audience at the Parkway Theatre in Baltimore. According to a press release, the video “is a rumination on the creation, cultivation, and confusion of narratives in media.”

    Check out the clip above. Pre-orders for B-Sides and Rarities are going on here.
