Thirty years on from their heyday, blissful dream pop of the Cocteau Twins variety still seems as popular as ever. This fifth record from French-American duo Beach House certainly fits into that category, with a sprinkling of early-80s electropop (Space Song could be OMD) for good measure.
It’s like being wrapped in a gorgeous warm musical blanket, with a winning melody never far away and Victoria Legrand’s whispery vocals ready to sooth away all aches and pains.
