Biography

Baltimore, Maryland, United States (2005 – present)

Beach House is a dream pop group that formed in 2005 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. The group consists of Victoria Legrand (vocals, organ) and Alex Scally (guitar, keyboards). Legrand is the niece of composer Michel Legrand. The group has released five albums: “Beach House” (2006), “Devotion” (2008), “Teen Dream” (2010), “Bloom” (2012) and “Depression Cherry” (2015).

Within a year of formation, the group charmed music enthusiasts across the blogosphere with their languid songcraft, while the eerie warmth of “Apple Orchard” landed on Pitchfork’s Infinite Mixtape MP3 series in August . Two months later, Beach House issued their eponymous debut album for Carpark. Fall shows with labelmates Over The Atlantic were also scheduled.

Victoria can also be heard on Frenemies’ Birds in High School album. She and Chris Freeland created harmonies on the song Waiting for the Ambulance. Victoria can also be heard on Grizzly Bear’s 2009 release “Veckatimest” and she sings on “Slow Life”, a Grizzly Bear track featured on the official soundtrack for Twilight: New Moon.

In September of 2009 Sub Pop Records announced that Beach House had signed and that a follow up album to 2008’s “Devotion”, “Teen Dream” would be released in early 2010.

Beach House was featured as a cover story in a January 2010 issue of the Washington Post magazine.

    Maybe explain why it's boring or their worst, because I'm struggling to understand.

    Such a comforting thought: we'll always have Devotion. (I like the new one though)

    Unpopular opinion, but Devotion>S/t>DC>Bloom>TD lol [2] Not that unpopular :) Devotion is my church, but her voice sounds better than ever on the new record.

    Sparks is a misleading single. I love Beach House, and as a fan, I'm disappointed by their refusal to deviate and delve into other styles after all these years.

    Took me about 4 listens until I started enjoying the new album but now I love it. Definitely your most difficult album to get into so far. [2] Naw, that's Devotion for sure. Only album of theirs i haven't gotten into.

    They portray the one bearable facet of instantly disposable 2010s dream pop trash.
