DOWNLOAD: Beach House’s Woozy New Song
The Baltimore duo behind one of New Moon's best tracks get dreamy on the first leak from their January album.
Layers of ghostly organs and twinkling electric guitars; delicate percussion; Victoria Legrand’s spellbinding coo — it’s the unique sound of Baltimore duo Beach House, who blissfully pair Mazzy Star psychedelia with hints of 1950s girl-group pop, and it’s rife on “Norway,” a track from the band’s Sub Pop debut, Teen Dream (out Jan. 26). The song just hit the web — download it below!
Does something sound familiar? Well, Legrand guested on Grizzly Bear’s SPIN-approved release Veckatimest, and the pair teamed up for “Slow Life,” one of the best songs on the chart-topping New Moon soundtrack. And expect to hear more from Beach House in 2010: if “Norway” is any indication, Teen Dream could be the band’s big breakout release!
