Melbourne's Beaches are set to release their sophomore album, She Beats, on May 3 via the excellent Australian label Chapter Music. While the first advance track from the Jack Farley-produced (TwerpsScott & Charlene's Weddingrecord, "Distance," is a Stereolab-like psych swirl with guitar from Neu!’s Michael Rother, "Send Them Away" is brightly catchy noise-pop closer to what you'd expect from the band name. Less Best Coast than Flying Nun, the shambolic tune now has a similarly color-splashed, lighthearted animated video, directed by Ben Montero. It's heaven-sent, and you can watch it first here.
