It was co-produced by the band and Chris Coady, and was released on October 16, 2015, by Sub Pop. The album was released less than two months after their fifth studio album, Depression Cherry.
Spiritually, the album feels closer to the darker mood the duo cultivated before they signed to Sub Pop. Over the last decade, Beach House have been remarkably consistent: at regular intervals, they put an immaculate new record into the world, and each tends to satisfy the same need. Until now, their pace of releases has indicated a grasp of the spot their music held in listeners’ hearts; the world that Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand build on their records is a place we want to revisit, but the spaces in between records has felt essential to that magic.
Beach House is vocalist Victoria Legrand and guitarist Alex Scally, a pair of musicians who have honed a particular breed of haunting, lovelorn indie-rock. The band has been steadily churning out records for nearly a decade, including 2008's highly acclaimed Devotion. The year of its release, Devotion made Pitchfork's annual 50 Best Albums roundup, which was a tipping point that helped the band gain exposure and build momentum. Although it seems unlikely that Legrand and Scally could write and record a full album independent of their last LP, they have an explanation to cut through the confusion.
The album title, funny enough, ends up summing up the likely reaction for both Depression Cherry’s fans and detractors, as the second album gives both what they are hoping for, functioning far beyond the also-rans we might have envisioned. And this might have worked best on the album’s closer, Somewhere Tonight, which is Beach House’s closest attempt at a ’50s R&B sound to date, where the crackles and hiss of the record spinning added to the song’s ghostly appeal. On the track, Legrand and Scally craft a slow dance that seems generations old, evoking romance of days gone by, and shifting the aesthetic of Beach House from fantasy to memory.

Greene likened the mood of the songs to Beach House's material before they joined Sub Pop, describing the feeling as "pneumatic, dusty, like they are pulling a blanket around themselves in a heatless attic to ward off a threatening chill. Although the "joy and comfort have vanished" from the material, Greene claimed that that album is "still undeniably a Beach House album, a familiar mix of warm tones and chilly sentiments
