The members of Beach House have often been lumped in with Best Coast in the press accompanying their new album Bloom. While both groups are male/female duos with a similar audience releasing music around the same time, the two are vastly different.
Beach House has made a name for themselves in the six years they've been releasing music. Their self-titled 2006 debut drew easy comparisons to some dream pop forefathers (Mazzy Star, Slowdive), but added new ingredients to the mix. From early on they supplied their fans with songs that navigate the channel between ethereal and substantial. No surprise then, that the band has found a huge audience who's highly receptive to what they have to offer.
Though their biggest leap in popularity was likely with 2010's Teen Dream, Beach House has capitalized on years of work with the release of Bloom. It fits in well with their discography: Lead singer Victoria Legrande's airy vocals overtop a droning keyboard and dreamlike production. This Character Approved album will surely solidify Beach House's position in the hearts of their many fans.
