About Beach House (12/6/2013)
Meet the duo that's not afraid to remind everyone they're not a couple. Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally are collectively known as Beach House, but the stage is as far as the French-born songstress and the Baltimore guitarist will take their relationship.
This dream pop pair dropped their self-titled debut album back in 2006 to critical acclaim, and have followed it with three more albums: "Devotion" in 2008, "Teen Dream" in 2010 and "Bloom" in 2012. Their music has been described as 'slow,' 'dreamlike' and narcotic,' and both say they were heavily influenced by Neil Young and the films of David Lynch.
Self-described as "real small, but with really devoted fans," Beach House began as a recording project that slowly morphed into something more. The simplicity of their early set-up, however, continues to influence the way they make music. Just an organ, program drums, and a slide guitar has taken them a long way.
It was "Devotion" that won the band love from the critics, exploded their fanbase and landed them tours with the likes of Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear. "Teen Dream" was recorded in a converted church in New York, and "Bloom" appears to have reaffirmed their status as both an indie band and a duo comfortable falling under the umbrella of being critical darlings.
The duo released a short film, "Forever Still," on February 4, 2013. It was inspired by Pink Floyd's "Live at Pompeii" and features the band performing songs from "Bloom" at various sites around Tornillo, Texas.
