Oh, the hazy shades of autumn tinged music. Beach House traffic in the tradition of the boy-girl duo making love-sick, narcotic rock and roll. Their particular sound is filtered through an orange lens as the seasons transition from warm to cold. The duo of singer/organist Victoria Legrand and guitarist Alex Scally will gently draw you into their world and then disappear like ghosts. Though they may bring to mind the Shoegazers as they moved away from the noise and distortion, their's is an altogether more intimate affair. It's dream pop from the foot of the bed, with a warmth that has not been felt in quite sometime. Do yourself a favor and get familiar with the sounds of Beach House. You will be more than happy that you did.
