Beach House (Bingo!)

For anyone like me who is a sap for two souls musically entwined with romantic consciousness*, The pop duo Beach House is sure to tickle your ears by combining baby-fawn-of-early-spring-like-charm with dense, musically energetic melodies. The duo, Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand, hail from Baltimore; a city known for other indie favs as Animal Collective and Dan Deacon. Their newest release Devotion, is a colorful collection of songs that push the line between beautiful and bothered with echoing chasms of organ, percussion, and guitar. Songs like “Saltwater", "Apple Orchard", "Tokyo Witch", and "Master of None" all provide easy access to enjoying this band.

you're a poet.

do you like the submarines, the rosebuds, or mates of state? they also have the boy-girl-do-stuff vibe that you dig.
