Depression Cherry is the fifth studio album by American dream pop band Beach House, released on August 28, 2015 through Sub Pop Records, Bella Union Records and Mistletone Records. The album was recorded at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana over two months, from November 2014 to January 2015. It was co-produced by the band and Chris Coady.
According to the band, the album is a return to the simpler style of dream pop from their first two albums: "In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist."
Depression Cherry peaked at number 8 on the US Billboard 200 and at number one on the US Top Rock Albums chart.
