Tell Me Why: Beach House
I had a discussion with a dear friend the other night about Beach House and we both agreed it’s a struggle to see what all of the buzz is about. Even a band I love Vacationer, is always mentioning Beach House and how great they are. So what does Kenny Vasoli hear that I don’t?
Because honestly, Beach House; I don’t get it.
So help me out my music loving friends.
I listened to Bloom all the way through and struggled to make it to the end. I got bored. I will admit Beach House isn’t the kind of music I am naturally drawn to. Being a pop/punk lover, Beach House didn’t’ really stand a chance. There’s nothing aggressive about it and I can’t find an anthemic hook to sing-along with. I also don’t feel anything when I listen to it. There weren’t any songs that made me hit the back button. I just cruised right through all 10 tracks.
However, I can see it as music to have playing in my room and not pay any attention to it.
“Wow, that was way harsh Ty.”
Maybe I am looking (and listening) at all of this the wrong way. You are all tuned into what is cool and why you love the music you love. So, tell me why I should like Beach House.
