New Beach House Video – “Used To Be”

We filled you in on Beach House’s “Used To Be” 7″, then the Baltimore duo headed down to a beach (complete with waterfalls) to perform it. At first glance I thought Victoria and Alex raised the conceptual arc a notch by shooting the “Used To Be”‘s Matt Amato-directed video in — yes — a beach house (or at least a beach-side hotel), but alas: It was shot in a desert outside L.A. and features the sharp-dressed band waiting around, contemplating themselves, and generally feeling the tug of time.
