Beach House - Bloom

I remember when I happened upon Beach House for the first time... I was completely smitten.

Beach House were also one of the first bands I talked about on this blog and now I'm going to talk about them again because they just released their 4th album, Bloom.

I was worried as to whether I'd like the new album because I loved Teen Dream so much - how could anything ever top that? Bloom takes a few listens to get used to but thankfully it's a winner! It pretty much follows their regular formula of chill, dream-pop infused tunes but it's more than that. You need to listen for yourself.

Lyrics are still lovely and Victoria Legrand's voice is still incredible.

"So you thought it would happen 

Good luck goodbye
I know when no one can reach you 
No I don’t mind
It’s your word why would you fake it
These days go by
As you turn around-ow-ow-ow

Other people want to keep in touch
Something happens and its not enough
Never thought that it would mean so much
Other people want to keep in touch"
(Other People)

Tunes to listen to include "Other People", "Wild", and "Myth".

Bloom, Teen Dream, Devotion and Beach House are all available for purchase on iTunes. If these albums aren't already in your possession, rectify the situation. Now.
