Future-Favorite-Band Series

B Is For Beach House

[source]

If you like: The Zombies, Grizzly Bear

Then let me introduce: Beach House

 

When it comes to music, sometimes bigger is better. Giving you the ability to get lost in sound, big music is far from the grounding nature of say an acoustic ballad or top 40 anthem music. In a genre that could only be called dream pop, Beach House’s sound combines the slow, atmospheric rhythms and haunting lyrics of French-born Victoria Legrand and Baltimore native Alex Scally. (Legrand has also lent her Nico-esque voice to Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks” and “Slow Life.”) Each of their three albums delivers echoing music that floats right over your head in the best sense possible. Try to stay grounded, I dare you.

Starter Kit:
