Beach House – a band who have been almost constantly touring the past few years, is getting huge attention all over the world. Further evidence, the work you put into something, the results will show up.
One of the more highly regarded of the Dream Pop bands, Beach House have been around since 2004, and in the 12 years since they got started, they’ve been steadily building up a following. With the hypnotic vocals of Victoria Legrand and the multi-talented Alex Scully handling everything else – Beach House have established a solid reputation for themselves. Augmented by two additional musicians for live gigs, Beach House and nonetheless sparse in their execution, but the simplicity is deceptive. There’s a lot going on and it’s engaging and always worth repeated listenings.
It’s a safe bet they will be touring the Festivals this year – I suspect they may make another appearance at Coachella and SXSW, but it’s not confirmed. No matter where they are playing this year you really need to check them out in a concert setting, and I would classify them in the “must see” category.
In the meantime, here is their appearance at the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago from October 29th.
I would definitely turn this one up and fall head-first into it. Just under a half-hour, this little band from Baltimore creates a wonderful and engrossing atmosphere. And you can’t ask for much better than that.
