THE MASTERS OF DREAMY INDIE POP MAKE THEIR LONG-AWAITED AUCKLAND ARTS FESTIVAL DEBUT
For more than a decade, Baltimore duo Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally has produced gorgeous, otherworldly music synonymous with the dream pop genre. Elevated to indie stardom with their celebrated 2010 EP Teen Dream, and still going strong with the release of their seventh album, 7, the critics and their passionate fans all agree that they only get better with each new collection of sublimely hypnotic pop songs.
Leading the dream pop renaissance alongside shoegaze trailblazers Slowdive and Ride, as well as current Kiwi indie darlings Yumi Zouma and Fazerdaze, Beach House’s signature blend of smoky vocals, graceful guitar melodies, velvety organ and synth patterns, and richly atmospheric stage presence is often imitated but rarely equalled. Go back to the source and bask in the band’s lush, indescribably satisfying sound at this exclusive one-night-only Auckland concert.

“[Beach House] are special, maybe even one of a kind – undeniably, consistently brilliant.” — Noisey
“The Baltimore duo of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally is so delicate and cryptic in the weaving of its dream-pop tracks that even straightforward key changes float by unnoticed, like the dried seeds of a dandelion in the breeze. And Legrand’s smoky, drawling voice—which is very often layered and swallowed by itself like a Russian nesting doll—doesn’t so much escort you through a hypnotic melody of rich organ and guitar delay as it provides you with a feather-stuffed pillow and hand-knitted quilt to take a comfy nap inside of one.” – AV Music
