Have you even been listening to a lot music from a band that you just determined to call a tune after them? Apparently that’s the story behind The Chainsmokers’ new tune “Beach House,” which was impressed after listening to quite a lot of the band Beach House.
The Chainsmokers additionally mentioned they tried to “get again to our roots on this with that basic OG Chainsmoker really feel,” however we worry their thought of roots could also be misunderstood.
Rather than their 2012-2014 roots, “Beach House” extra carefully resembles their 2016-2017 roots… which… are these even roots? First off, it’s undoubtedly extra of an electropop tune than the rest they’ve launched this yr, with acoustic guitar bridges and Drew’s voice once more on full show. The drop additionally options a lot of the identical oddly blended synths that had been so prevalent on Memories… Do Not Open. Hardly “roots,” wouldn’t you say?
Of all of the songs The Chainsmokers have launched in 2018, that is undoubtedly my least favourite. It’s not unhealthy, however looks like extra of a regression than a tribute to their roots. Listen to “Beach House” beneath.
