The two brains behind the project, Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, share vocals on the intoxicating opener Dark Spring, and follow with the tranquil Pay No Mind. Legrand’s layered vocals on L’Inconnue are hypnotic as synths descends over the track, and Legrand unveils some her native tongue French as the song progresses. An imposing synth steals the show on Drunk in LA, while the breathy vocals on Lose Your Smile take you to a blissful place. Beach House have well and truly cemented themselves as one of the most mesmerising acts making contemporary music, their concoction of enticing vocals and richly-textured instrumentation hard to resist.
