Beach House is an American dream pop band from Baltimore, Maryland, formed in 2004. The band consists of French-born Victoria Legrand(vocals, keyboards) and Baltimore native Alex Scally (guitar, keyboards).
Having previously released their first 4 albums on Bella Union (excluding US + Canada) , the band announced the release of their fifth album Depression Cherry in May 2015. The album was released on August 28 . Talking of the direction of the new album, the band said “In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.” On October 7, 2015, the band announced a second album, entitled Thank Your Lucky Stars, which was released on October 16, 2015.
