Listen: New Beach House, “Norway” from forthcoming Teen Dreams

November 19, 2009

Of Teen Dreams‘ 10 tracks, due this January on Sub Pop, this song feels like one of the more Beach House-we-know: soft maybe-programmed percussion; Victoria LeGrande singing somehow always facing away from you in that sweet, just-woke-up voice; organ; glissando, dream-state guitar. Add in some backing vocals and bring the production somewhat up from the duo’s resolute underwater aesthetic, and you have the newer, more-polished Beach House that may surprise some people.

Also: this is the song that, supposedly, goes with this video. Anyhow, listen here.
