Beach House – Myth

March 9, 2012

What’s so stunning about Beach House is that they make dream-pop–a genre that lends itself to a certain light-hearted or nostalgic weightlessness–feel utterly weighty, epic and important. It’s Victoria Legrand’s vocal delivery, a deep croon that somehow simultaneously evokes feelings of intimacy and detachment. Bloom is due out May 15th, and if “Myth” is any indication, it seems as this is a release that may represent a band that finds itself smack in the middle of its creative prime.
