One of the side effects of dream pop is that it doesn't translate all that well to massive festival stages. That's what Beach House said, at least, in a press release for their upcoming fifth album, Depression Cherry – which is now streaming below (via NPR).

The duo (Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally) said: "With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies... In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role."

Beach House recorded the album in Louisiana this past winter – during a timeframe the band note "crossed the anniversaries of both John Lennon’s and Roy Orbison’s deaths."

That'll make a lot more sense once you listen to the album, which drops Aug. 28 via Sub Pop.
