Comprised of Victoria Legrand (organ, and vocals) and Alex Scally (guitar and backing vocals). the Baltimore-based dream pop duo Beach House formed in 2004, when both Legrand and Scally were individually participating in Baltimore’s indie rock scene. And with the release of their self-titled debut, the duo won attention across the blogosphere for a hauntingly gorgeous and gauzy sound comprised of organ, shimmering guitars, looped drum beats and Legrand’s ethereal vocals. 

“Sparks,” the first single off the duo’s forthcoming Depression Cherry continues the duo’s long-established reputation but pairs their sound with an subtly off-beat syncopation – and it gives the song the feel of a feverish dream.
