The Baltimore duo – comprised of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally – last released a full-length record in 2018 with ‘7‘. Their forthcoming eighth studio album will arrive on February 18 via Bella Union. It comes after Scally confirmed in September that a new record was on the way.

Produced entirely by Beach House themselves, ‘Once Twice Melody’ was mixed by Alan Moulder, Caesar Edmunds, Trevor Spencer, and Dave Fridmann. It was recorded at studios in Cannon Falls, Los Angeles and Baltimore.
