CD Review: Beach House


Beach House
Devotion
Car Park
By David Chiu

Following the sound of its self-titled debut, Beach House’s latest is atmospheric indie pop highlighted by Victoria Legrand’s haunting Nico-esque vocals and keyboards; Alex Scally’s shimmering guitar; and minimal percussion. Devotion sounds haunting romantic, and melodic—it’s hard not to be hypnotized by tracks such as “Gila,” “Astronaut,” and “Home Again.” The album’s tone is funereal but strangely cathartic, resulting in something quite elegant.
