Editors’ Notes

On Teen Dream this Baltimore duo realizes its expansive folk-pop vision to an even greater degree than on 2008’s fine Devotion. In tandem with producer Chris Coady, Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally build upon minimal melodies and elliptical lyrics to create intricate textures that unfold over the course of each track. Legrand’s vocals range from languid to enraptured, though at times (notably on “Silver Soul”) she can sound surprisingly gutsy. The guitar and keyboard embroidery within “Take Care” and “Better Times” shimmer like gold thread against black velvet. The duo brings a symphonic quality to these tracks — “Zebra” and “10 Mile Stereo” swell with mounting emotion to intoxicating effect. Teen Dream is often ethereal, yet underpinned by visceral feeling and solid songcraft. The inescapable beat and sharp hooks found in “Lover of Mine” should dispel any notion that Legrand and Scally’s music is for exclusive consumption only. This is exalted, transporting music that reaches high and succeeds admirably.

Album of the Year Came Early

Buy This Album

This album is the pinnacle of Beach House's career. Finally on a mini-major, I urge everyone to check out this album before everyone and your mother is talking about this group. I'm fully blow away by just how much better Beach House gets with every effort. Teen Dream is less melancholy then their previous work, which just makes me want to listen to the whole album on repeat. Brilliant.


Formed: 2005 in Baltimore, MD

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Despite their summery name, Beach House create music that is dark, dreamy, and alluringly hypnotic. Baltimore residents Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand (the niece of French composer Michel Legrand) formed the duo in 2005, with Legrand's hushed, Nico-like vocals and Scally's delicate instrumentation paving the way for their first batch of songs. Within a year, Beach House had charmed indie music enthusiasts across the blogosphere with their languid songcraft, and the eerie warmth of "Apple Orchard"...
