After two albums of harmony-heavy dream pop, Beach House continued its dazzling evolution with 2010‘s Teen Dream, which we named Best Alternative Album in iTunes Rewind. The ethereal, hypnotizing melodies are as gorgeous as ever on the duo’s forthcoming Bloom. From the jump, a sinewy guitar melody gets blanketed by blissful atmospheric mist on “Myth.” While Teen Dream introduced more complexity (which is echoed on the weightless, organic melodies floating from composition like “Troublemaker”), Bloom’s “On the Sea” proves that Beach House can also drop our jaws (and give us chills) with stripped-down, piano-driven journeys.
