New Beach House Video – “Gila”

Beach House certainly aren’t camera shy. After releasing Devotion, one our ’08 favorites, the Baltimore duo’s showed up with slow fades and soft dissolves for “You Came To Me” and with a shopping cart and treasure map in “Heart Of Chambers.” Here, for melodically rich album standout “Gila” the Jon Leone video’s all about candles (of the standard and skull sort), strobes, black magic, fake blood, Victoria, singing (and speaking in tongues) into the camera with some sorta prayer beads in tote, and Alex ostensibly piloting the River Styx. Or at least some room in Baltimore.

Devotion is out now on Carpark.
