Beach House - “Zebra”
Beach House is the collaboration of Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand. Their last record, Devotion, garnered them critical praise from the likes of Pitchfork Media, while their newest, Teen Dream, continues with the shimmering harmonies and gorgeous guitars and keyboards. Legrand also lent her vocals to Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks”, which you might also have heard on KXT.
