Beach Fossils will release their third LP, Somersault, via Bayonet Records next month, and the Brooklyn trio’s been dropping numerous singles—“This Year”, “Saint Ivy”, and “Down the Line”—to help showcase their new, chamber-influenced style. Now, you can listen to not one, but two new tracks, one of which features Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, fresh off the release of her band’s new, self-titled album.
Goswell’s voice pairs mellifluously with Beach Fossils’ sumptuous, breathy aesthetic, which on “Tangerine” hits peak swoon factor amidst a foamy wave of strings. “Social Jetlag”, on the other hand, pairs stormy bursts of piano with samples of New York City’s crowded streets to evoke the sensation of a windy, midday walk. Listen to both of them via the videos below, each of which includes illustrations by Brian Blomerth.
Beach Fossils is also heading out on a tour of North America and the United Kingdom this summer. Check out the dates below.
