Baltimore’s Beach House released Teen Dream on January 25th, 2010 on Sub Pop. It will stand as one of most essential, seductive, beautifully evocative pop records of the year. Teen Dream is their third album following Devotion in 2008 and their self-titled debut in 2006. The band’s last Dublin show in Whelan’s in February of this year was sold out long in advance. Early booking is advised for this show as this will be Beach House’s only remaining Irish date this year.

“Delicate, lovelorn pop”
Pitchforkmedia – 8.5/10

“A record of autumnal beauty, all golds and browns, which evokes with extraordinary vividness a picture of a seaside resort shutting up shop and preparing for less populous months to come… A great new find.”
Sunday Times

“Should be the soundtrack to a misty French film… deeply atmospheric and stirring”
The Guardian – 4 stars ***

“To say this record elevates the band far above the swollen ranks of shuffling shoegazers currently doing the rounds is putting it mildly”
Drowned in Sound – 9/10

“Ever wondered how Nico might sound after a day’s sunbathing? Well, wonder no longer because the gorgeous debut album by Beach House gives you some idea…”
The Times

“Magical folk-pop from Franco-American duo. Recorded in Baltimore but haunted by opium dreams of Paris… there are exquisite moments here that recall Mazzy Star, Nico-era Velvets and even Radiohead.”

When Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally returned home to their hometown of Baltimore last winter, they were worn out from touring and travel. But deep inside them hot energies were incubating, ideas they had been whispering back and forth in the wake of their sophomore full-length, 2008’s “Devotion”. By spring they began handing themselves over completely to these impulses, holing themselves up and exchanging ideas in a new, secluded practice space for dangerously long periods of time. As the songs that would become “Teen Dream” began to live, breathe and take shape, the duo were compelled to leave much of their personal lives behind them. “We were forced to let go of people and things we were holding onto as individuals” Legrand muses. “We were dropped into a wilderness, but we had more clarity than we’ve ever had before”.

Still driven to avoid distraction, the two marched further into isolation, deciding to bottle all those wild visions away from home. They packed up their lives and settled into a converted church in upstate New York with producer Chris Coady. For a month they continued the birthing process, sweating and pushing out sounds inside a cocoon of their very own weaving. They chased down songs and dark rushes, the creative telepathy that Scally and Legrand share together taking a strangely physical hold. “There’s a different level of intimacy, and physicality, on Teen Dream”, Legrand explains… “Rhythmically, there’s a new motion. This record touches you”.

Teen Dream is the sound of a band bursting at its creative seams. It is without question more expansive and moving than anything they have shared before.

Good band, and they were brilliant the last time I saw them (two years ago, I think, when they were touring Devotion, missed out last time due to it selling out). Coming around to the opinion that their first album is the most interesting so far though, the next two are both very solid but they lose a bit of that eerie vibe. Surprised to see them becoming the latest indie phenomenon, I thought their stuff was too low key and lacking in hit potential to be picked up on like that, fair play to them though.
