Another arbitrary 365-day cycle has come and gone, offering the music world an opportunity to reflect on the fruits of the preceding year’s toil. Most frequently, these reflections come in the form of innumerable ‘Best Of’ lists, but for 2013, dream pop duo Beach House decided to reminisce the retro way: with an old school home video. The band’s latest video for “New Year,” off of 2012’s Bloom, samples footage from their recording session at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, Texas. The video is replete with up-close-and-personal shots of the band in action, shakily shot Halloween décor and a well-timed catfight (literal cats, not the kind you need to take your earrings out for) which, as the band writes, “we just thought these moments and the memories they involve fit this song.”
Watch the video above and buy the rest of Beach House’s Bloom, out now on Sub Pop.
