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.

    absolute gorgeousness. I just saw the Beach video in Australia now too, and it blew me away. The clarity in her voice is amazing. I love them 4 life! You guys can have your Animal Collective, I’ll take Beach House thank you very much.

      Why compare Animal Collective and Beach House if they’re vastly different? I like ‘em both, thank you very much.

    I don’t get it? I’m told it is really good but I don’t believe them. Mediocre at best?

    What a stunning song.. I like the fuzzy guitar chords, works well with their sound.
