CD Cover Art: Beach House - Bloom


Bloom, by Beach House.


Beach House is a duo from Baltimore, Maryland formed in 2004.

  • Victoria Legrand (from France) – lead vocals, keyboards
  • Alex Scally (from Baltimore) – guitar, bass, keyboards, backing vocals.


I haven't been able to stop listening to their music for the last year or so. They have a nostalgic/dreamy sound, and have been described as "dream pop"... Their music makes me think of memories, the passage of time, and life moments in slo-motion. I jotted down some quick notes of words that were triggered while listening to this album.

Here's the beginning of my concept:

  • Creating a large depth of field (i.e. ocean, sky, clouds, horizons, large landscapes )
  • Fading/blurring of space (using motion, movement of water, element of wind)
  • Light and shadow highlights (in nature - I keep seeing nature images)...
  • Theme of isolation - (Maybe that is why I have "Iron Giant" on my mood board.) :)
  • Nostalgic 1950's beach postcard? Maybe?


Mood Board:


I'm a little late to the game here, but I'm really looking forward to creating some great work with everyone. Next up - sketches...
