Marty Duda's artist of the week - Beach House

From Nine To Noon, 11:05 am on 27 January 2016

Dream pop band Beach House was formed in 2004 by Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally in Baltimore, Maryland. French-born vocalist Victoria Legrand is the niece of acclaimed French composer Michel Legrand. Alex and Victoria began recording in 2006 and immediately drew comparisons to The Cocteau Twins. The duo has been recording steadily over the past decade, releasing two full-length albums in 2015. They are one of the main attractions at this year's Laneway Festival, scheduled to take place in Auckland this coming Monday.
