Beach House
Bloom
(Sub Pop)
Releasing 15 May


The duo of Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand, otherwise known as Beach House, return with their latest album Bloom in May and are previewing the work with an MP3 for “Myth”. Beach House conceived of the work as an Album, in the truest sense of the word, a cohesive, longform artistic statement. “Many songs were omitted or dropped because they lacked a place within our vision for this album,” says Scally.

"'Lazuli' gleefully opens with a Casio-like ping of notes, before the song transforms itself into something from the Cure’s Disintegration in its open and spacious sound that feels epic in rendering." -- Zachary Houle
