Beach House - Irene (from Bloom)
Beach House is a dream pop duo formed in 2004 in Baltimore, Maryland, consisting of French-born Victoria Legrand and Baltimore native Alex Scally. The group has released three albums: 2006’s “Beach House”, 2008’s “Devotion” and “Teen Dream” in early 2010. On February 24 2012, many blogs and music websites announced that a new Beach House album entitled Bloom would be released on May 15 via Sub Pop. On March 7 the band updated their website to stream a new song, “Myth”. A couple days later the label officially announced that the new album Bloom would be released on May 15. Within a year of formation, the group charmed indie 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 2006. The band is often labeled a “dream pop” band due to their slow, atmospheric rhythms and haunting lyrics.
