There is something equally eerie and beautiful about the opening track of 2010’s Teen Dream. Baltimore-duo Beach House dazzle with their magnificent single, Zebra. It allows listeners to experience the divine work of Victoria Legrand’s soothing voice, which fits perfectly with Alex Scally’s melodic and slick guitar sound. The tracks leads the listener into a “dreamy” state and escalates into a thunderous pitch all the way until the conclusion, going from one side of the spectrum to the other. This leaves the audience overwhelmed with its charm as well as its ambiguity.
As beautiful as it is haunting, it seduces the listener; leaving them captivated by the sweetness of Zebra’s sound.
