Beach House - Devotion album
Beach House is an American dream pop duo formed in Baltimore, Maryland in 2004. The band consists of vocalist and keyboardist Victoria Legrand and guitarist, keyboardist, and backup vocalist Alex Scally.
Bloom is the fourth studio album by American dream pop duo Beach House. It was co-produced by the band and Chris Coady, and was released on May 15, 2012, by Sub Pop. The album was written over two years of touring and was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas, over seven weeks.
While many Beach House fans are gearing up for the next, as-yet-unnanounced full-length project from the ephemeral, Baltimore-based duo, the group has decided to give some of their earliest admirers something new to pick up.

We all love Beach House, and when the opportunity came up, we all agreed we should do a Beach House record. Cameron Schaefer, Vinyl Me, Please Head of Music: Yeah, basically we all love Beach House, and want our members to listen to them. Getting this opportunity to work with them is something we’ve wanted for a long time. Both incredible records, but it feels like Devotion has ended up as a slightly overlooked album, where people are maybe aware that it’s in their catalog, but haven’t explored it as much as the newer albums. It’s really the album where they found their sound and the fact that it’s the album’s 10th anniversary this year was a good opportunity to put the spotlight on the album in a new way.
