Do you have a band that you just don’t ‘get’? One of those groups that everyone expects you to like and yet every time you hear them the lights just switch off? It was like that with us for Beach House. We always found them insubstantial and foggily light. We just couldn’t understand what everyone heard in them. Then we saw them live and finally the right buttons were pressed. Despite doing very little on stage the band’s sound was a completely immersive experience; we finally realised their brilliance. First impressions don’t always count, yet unfortunately sometimes once we've made our mind up about an act we put our blinkers on and never give them a second chance. We’ve got a lot more to say about that on the blog tomorrow.
Yesterday the band released a new video for their song Wishes, taken from 2012’s Bloom, starring Ray Wise (Twin Peaks). It’s certainly one of the more surreal half time performances you’ll get to see. The song remains absolutely lovely. We’re now a fully paid up member to the church of Beach House and its congregation.
