Lyrics from MythBeach House is an indie rock duo formed in 2004 in Baltimore, Maryland by Victoria Legrand (vocals, organ) and Alex Scally (guitar, keyboards). At odds with their sunny name and the delirious indie electro coming out of Baltimore in the mid to late 2000s, Beach House make spellbinding dark, slow and beautiful music. Combining Scally's bright lead guitar with sparse drum machines, rich organ, and Legrand's striking, lugubrious vocals, Beach House set out the blueprint for their sound with their 2006 self-titled debut. Released on Carpark Records, the album received a positive critical reception and helped the band develop a modest cult following. The band continued to perfect and refine their core sound with 2008's Devotion (Carpark), and 2010's Teen Dream (Sub Pop), which helped the band expand to a much wider audience. The band’s highly anticipated latest effort, Bloom, was released in 2012, also on Sub Pop Records.
