Show Preview: Beach House in Charleston, SC

Beach House    The Music Farm, Charleston, SC    Sunday, May 6

This Sunday, Beach House will be bringing their ethereal, dreamy music to South Carolina. ‘Powerful’, ‘gorgeous’, and ‘unforgettable’ are words that I have read to describe Beach House’s live show so I’m sure this will be something incredible. Beach House are days away from releasing their new album Bloom on May 15th featuring previously-released song Myth along with 9 other tracks. I’m expecting that they will be showcasing most of these new tunes.

Truth be told, I am not a huge fan of Beach House’s first two albums. I haven’t listened to them more than 3 times each but I just found them to be a bit flat and samey. However, their 2010 release Teen Dream changed this and brought out more instruments and interesting melodies and won me over. Their new single Myth is a brilliant song that adds another dimension to Beach House’s music. It adds even more instruments which seem to make singer Victoria Legrand’s voice sound even better. I’m hoping that they can flesh out their older tracks on stage and make them sound a little bit more interesting.
