Beach House

After forming in Baltimore in 2005, Beach House’s knack for languid, ambient pop songs quickly received national attention. But the band’s roots go back even farther, with vocalist and keyboard player Victoria Legrand and guitarist Alex Scully playing music while growing up together in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and France. For a short time they were members of Baltimore electro outfit Daggerhearts, but the duo soon took to writing and recording music on their own. Their song “Apple Orchard” was included on a Pitchfork compilation, which boosted the group’s popularity and catapulted their Nico-esque sensibility into the hearts of music bloggers around the globe.
