Song of the Day: Beach House “Norway”

I have a confession to make. Norway makes me think of beautiful grey-coloured things. Romantically melancholic concrete blocks, dank dish-water skies, slow but incessant rain, convenience stores, and all those things I secretly like.



This track embodies all that in sound – the pace, melody and stoner lyrics are perfect for my dust-bunny-shaded fetish. Plus, Victoria Legrand’s mannish and yet enticingly glamour-puss vocals get me every time.

Plus Plus: fluffy microphones. I know, right? Way to go, Beach House, for making me actually long for wintry bleakness when and dramatic overcast skies when it just turned spring.
