2010’s Teen Dream, the third album from Baltimore duo Beach House, was popularly embraced as really, really good romantic activity music. Said Alex Scally, when Vulture asked him about the album’s soundtracking possibilities: “One time we were walking through this outdoor festival and these people were blasting it out of a car stereo and making out really hard, and we were both like, ‘That’s it! That’s what it needs to be!’” If “Myth,” the brand!-new! track from Beach House, is any indication, this has become sort of a career mission statement, because it is ready-made for your next romantic couch session. There is probably a reason they dropped this thing at midnight EST. Anyway, file away for next time. Bloom is reportedly due in May.
