Beach House

Already with a tour in Europe, Beach House is beginning their rise through the indie rock scene.  Their psychedelic music and dreamlike rhythms have been an inspiration for many artists in the local area.  Their sound and melody is hard to attach with a time and era, but that is what makes Beach House unique.  The duo of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally has been labeled has having a “dream pop” sound, but labeling the awe and lore of their music would not be fair.  Their slow and moving lyrics are up to various interpretations of which Baltimore has come to love.
