Beach House’s new album titled Bloom has received positive reviews from most critics, and “Lazuli” is no different. The song’s name actually comes from a rare, blue-colored stone called Lapis Lazuli. The band said that this was their inspiration for both the song and video. The music video features various shots of the band playing in some sort of weird 90s science-fiction movie animations with space and of course, the color blue. An old man at a bar, a young girl dancing with a blue light and a small boy living on the street make up the majority of the video. The sound is a familiar one, and is full of the gentle, melodic rhythm that has become Beach House’s signature sound since their 2010 release of Teen Dream.
