Beach House Play Songs in a Big Furry Room

This just in - the new Beach House album is really good. It's super nice to see all this warm reception for Baltimore's Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand, as the interwebs have been full of hushed and dreamy pop music in the weeks surrounding the release of Teen Dream.

Above you'll find a live video production compliments of Pitchfork, where Beach House perform the lead track off their new LP called "Zebra". This was shot and recorded in their practice space, that was lined with soft and fluffy white fur. I've seen them play in a lot of different environments with various elements to bounce their sound around, but nope... never fur.

The set for the shoot was designed by Alex and Victoria. Daniel Franz of Arbouretum, who has been a recent accomplice of their performances, joins them to lend a percussive hand. Beach House also recently stopped by Daytrotter where they played four tracks off of Teen Dream, including two of my favorites - "Take Care" and "Used to Be".

Check out the other two P4k videos for "Silver Soul" and "Walk in the Park" below.
