Today I got around to listening to the new Beach House record ‘Bloom’. From the first few listens I knew I liked it, and it really is terrific. The album title is is perfect, because it sums up the band. They’ve gradually honed their craft and are now at the peak of their powers. The last record ‘Teen Dream‘ was dream pop and this follows on in the same vein. Their sound is bigger and more defined on this record though. Track for track it works perfectly. They now have thoughtful lyrics and a polished sound. My favourite tracks so far would be ‘Lazuli’, ‘Myth’ and ‘Wishes.’ I would definitely recommend getting a copy of this. I also like this unofficial video for ‘Myth’, which is below.
