Music Profile: Beach House

Beach House is an American indie rock duo formed in 2004 in Baltimore, Maryland, consisting of French-born Victoria Legrand and Baltimore native Alex Scally. Their self-titled debut, Beach House, was critically acclaimed. Their second release, Devotion, was in 2008. The band released their third studio album, Teen Dream in January 2010, also to positive critical and commercial reaction.

I stumbled upon Beach House in 2010, much to my delight. This is a band you can listen to on a lazy Sunday, driving in your car or just if you want to chill out. Legrand's incredible voice leaves you wondering if she has some kind of amazing voice changer but you realise it's just because she is so talented. I really thought at first it was a man singing I was astonished to find it was a woman!

My favourite album of theirs is their 3rd album, Teen Dream and tracks from it include Silver Soul, Used To Be and Take Care. Other notable tracks include "Darling" and "Gila" from Devotion, "Saltwater" and "Master of None" from Beach House.

These 3 albums are all available from Amazon, iTunes and JB Hi-Fi so run, don't walk to get yourself a copy of either or all of them. You will not be disappointed.
