In May, serene pop duo Beach House shared 7, their catchiest album yet. The director of the music video for "Drunk In LA" is a pretty special get: Sonic Boom of the pioneering psychedelic rock band Spaceman 3. Under his direction, a series of aimlessly wandering scenes are transformed into an AI's dream, filmed underwater on one of Jupiter's moons. In a statement, the band said Sonic Boom's video is based on "an idea for a video where the viewer is always looking up from the ground... 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.” Watch above and read The FADER's interview with Beach House here.
