Beach House – The Hours (2012)

 

拜陳偉殷所賜,大家對巴爾的摩這個城市應不陌生,男女雙人組合Beach House即來自於此。主唱兼鍵盤手Victoria Legrand有著深厚的音樂背景,從小受過聲樂訓練,沙啞低沉的嗓音具有深厚的情感穿透力;吉他手Alex Scally的吉他鋪陳則令他們的歌曲有著更生動的情緒起伏。

 

自出道至今,Beach House從未改變過其招牌Dream-Pop曲風,不免令人擔心能否在專業領域有所突破,甫推出的第四張專輯「Bloom」正好告訴我們不需庸人自擾。脫俗的鍵琴搭配顫動思緒的電吉他,單純的樂器編制創造出極富張力的情緒效果,每每觸及聽者的靈魂最深處,勾起那封存已久的回憶。

Beach House – The Hours

 

Can I wait the hours

Till you find me

Climb up to the tower

So that you could see

 

Violence in the flowers

Where they found you

Can I wait the hours

Would it be untrue

Climb up to the tower

So that you could see

All across the hours

 

Frightened eyes

Looking back at me

Change your mind

Don't care about me

Frightened eyes

Looking back at me

Change your mind

Don't leave without me

Frightened eyes

 

Made in your reflection

So that you could feel

Mad in your intentions

Feel it isn't real

All the recollections

Spinning in a field

Left in your possession

Till it isn't real

You say it isn't real

 

Frightened eyes

Looking back at me

Change your mind

Don't care about me

Frightened eyes

Looking back at me

Change your mind

Don't leave without me

Frightened eyes

 

Deeper than you and me

It's farther than you could see

Is it too much to ask tell me

It's all in a glance you'll see

It's deeper than you and me

It's all in a glance you'll see

It's farther than we could be

It's deeper than you and me

Frightened eyes

  • dream-pop的風格真的就像在夢一般,如夢似幻的飄渺回音
    beach house和小編上次介紹的memory house都是女主唱
    是剛好嗎?還是dream-pop都走女主唱路線呢~
    真喜歡看這個部落格(雖然一陣子沒來了啦)可以聽到好音樂又可以了解不同的音樂風格!!
  • Ruby妳好!很高興看到妳的留言,
    其實dream-pop也有男主唱團體,如Luna與其前身Galaxie 500,
    由於該曲風主要源於Cocteau Twins這個女主唱樂團(王菲早期唱腔即受此團影響)
    再加上小編實在是抗拒不了女主唱的魅力(羞),
    便忍不住想要把Beach House和Memoryhouse介紹給大家~
    關於dream-pop的介紹可以參考這裡:

    其實小編很怕大家無法接受這些奇奇怪怪的曲風,
    聽妳這麼說讓小編更有信心與動力,
    謝謝妳!
