Once Twice Melody is the 8th studio album by Beach House. It is a double album, featuring 18 songs presented in 4 chapters. Across these songs, many types of style and song structures can be heard. Songs without drums, songs centered around acoustic guitar, mostly electronic songs with no guitar, wandering and repetitive melodies, songs built around the string sections. In addition to new sounds, many of the drum machines, organs, keyboards and tones that listeners may associate with previous Beach House records remain present throughout many of the compositions.

Beach House is Victoria Legrand, lead singer and multi-instrumentalist, and Alex Scally, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist. They write all of their songs together. Once Twice Melody is the first album produced entirely by the band. The live drums are by James Barone (same as their 2018 album, 7), and were recorded at Pachyderm studio in Minnesota and United Studio in Los Angeles. For the first time, a live string ensemble was used. Strings were arranged by David Campbell.

The writing and recording of Once Twice Melody began in 2018 and was completed in July of 2021. Most of the songs were created during this time, though a few date back over the previous 10 years. Most of the recording was done at Apple Orchard Studio in Baltimore. Once Twice Melody was mixed largely by Alan Moulder but a few tracks were also mixed by Caesar Edmunds, Trevor Spencer, and Dave Fridmann.

It’s written on the sleeve: B-Sides and Rarities. But this summer 2017 release is not just for hardcore Beach House fans, as the pieces brought together on this compilation give a good account of the talent of this Baltimore duo who specialise in dream pop. Like a nice introduction for novices… 2015 was a good year for Beach House fans. With two excellent albums just 50 days apart (Depression Cherry followed by Thank Your Lucky Stars), the sublime melancholy that is carried on the voice of Victoria Legrand (niece of Michel) and in the harmonies of Alex Scally offered a nicely varied palette of tones. The mixed bag suggested by the title B-Sides and Rarities isn’t really what you get. Fourteen songs gleaned from across the length of their career, with in particular two unreleased numbers: Chariot and Baseball Diamond. ” When we announced that we were releasing a B-sides and rarities album the pair relate, someone on Twitter asked, ‘B-sides record? Why would Beach House put out a B-sides record? Their A-sides are like B-sides.’ This random person has a point. Our goal has never been to make music that is explicitly commercial. Over the years, as we have worked on our 6 LPs, it wasn’t the ‘best’ or most catchy songs that made the records, just the ones that fit together to make a cohesive work. Accordingly, our B-sides are not songs that we didn’t like as much, just ones that didn’t have a place on the records we were making..

7 features standouts including the Valentine’s Day single “Lemon Glow” along with “Black Car,” “Drunk In LA,” “Dark Spring,” and the transcendent “Dive”. All of the songs on 7 began in Beach House’s home studio in Baltimore, and were finished at Carriage House in Stamford, CT and Palmetto Studio in Los Angeles. The album was mixed by Alan Moulder. Beach House (Alex Scally & Victoria Legrand) released B-sides and Rarities in 2017, which served as a proverbial “cleaning out the closet” to pave the way for a new creative process. Their approach in the creation of 7 was one of rebirth and rejuvenation. Scally and Legrand used to limit themselves to what they thought they could perform live, but this time that limitation was ignored. Also, instead of one long studio session, Beach House recorded when inspired by batches of songs, which resulted in five mini-sessions over the course of eleven months. Unlike the last four albums, 7 didn’t have a producer in the traditional sense. Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) became a significant force on this record by shedding conventions and helping to keep the songs alive, fresh, and protected from the destructive elements of recording studio overproduction and over-perfection. The band’s trusted live drummer from 2016 to the present, James Barone, played on the entire record, helping to keep rhythm at the centre of a lot of these songs.

Bloom is the spectacular follow-up to Beach House’s 2010 critically acclaimed work, Teen Dream. Written over a course of two years, the album is a masterful landscape of chords, shimmering guitar lines, melodies, rhythms and textures, meant to be experienced as a singular vision. Led by the hit single “Myth,” the album has already garnered high regards from CBS and Pitchfork. The recording exposes the fragile, yet beautiful, journey of our existence. Bloom is a dynamic and lush album that highlights the crafty sound of the indie pop-duo.

“When it comes to creating atmospheric music these days, the Baltimore-based band Beach House is tops.” – David Chiu, CBS News

“Bloom is also what these 10 songs do, each one starting with the sizzle of a lit fuse and at some fine moment exploding like a firework in slow motion…Much of the power of Beach House’s music lies in the way it forgoes simple, this-means-this storytelling in favor of communicating indescribable emotions.” – Lindsay Zoladz, Pitchfork
