Beach House

Originally formed 2004 in Baltimore, Maryland, Beach House is an American dream-pop duo consisting of of French-born Victoria Legrand (vocals, keyboards) and Baltimore native Alex Scally (guitar).

Despite their summery name, Beach House creates music that is dark, dreamy, and alluringly hypnotic. In an interview with LiveAbout, Scally summarized their music as following:

I think that’s very much what the ‘beach house’ feel is: going off to a different world. It’s not really a vacation; vacation for me is when you go away, but you’re still thinking about all the things you’ve left behind.

Their self-titled debut released in early October 2006 via Carpark Records, the same label who also distributed 2008’s Devotion. Since 2010’s Teen Dream, Beach House has been signed to Sub Pop Records.
