Critical acclaim for Depression Cherry:

“Beach House build multiple mood layers into each track… These are songs that soak into you.”
The Telegraph – 5 Stars ***** (Album Of The Week)

“Graceful and nuanced… By reducing the scope and rediscovering the value of nuance, Beach House end up sounding bigger and better than ever before.”
Uncut – 8/10

“A record on which every subtle chord shift and breathy sigh feels considered.”
The Guardian – 4 Stars ****

“As a dreamy mood-setter the nine songs work a treat… Beautiful, melancholy, meditative.”
Evening Standard – 4 Stars ****

“Luxuriant, ethereal, gauzy, intense, exquisite.”
Mail On Sunday – 4 Stars ****

“Fans will be spellbound… Depression Cherry pulls off the rare trick of stripping the duo’s sound back and embracing simplicity, while actually sounding more sophisticated and accomplished than their previous work.”
Record Collector – 4 Stars ****

“Both delicate and sophisticated. The echoey vocals hit on fleeting passions (Levitation) and high-flying wonder (Space Song), while cleverly integrating influences from retro 60s pop (PPP) to the celestial crooning of 80s faves The Cocteau Twins (Days Of Candy). Contemplative and soothing.”
The Mirror – 4 Stars ****

“Legrand and Scally have returned to the very basic machine patterns of their earliest records. The album standout is ’10:37′, with layered and chopped-up backing vocals that gently suggest Brian Wilson and R&B… If Depression Cherry suggests they are stuck in a groove, its a groove that is worth wallowing in.”
The Observer (Album of the Week)

“Minimal beats, carefully chosen guitar lines, dreamy keyboards and Victoria Legrand’s even more dreamy voice… Exquisite.”
