With their unapologetically ethereal, ephemeral dream pop, the US duo Beach House floats into town to take to the stage of Cine Joia in its first show for Brazilian audiences. Breaking through with Teen Dream in 2010, the Baltimore band attracted still more interest with its most recent effort, Bloom (2012), managing to satisfy the indie crowd and music journalists alike with its more elaborate arrangements, albeit never straying very far from their initial aesthetic.

The vocalist and keyboard player Victoria Legrand’s airy voice continues to invite comparisons to singers like Elizabeth Fraser of the Scottish band Cocteau Twins and the icy deadpan of Nico. They’re comparisons which are backed up by Legrand’s ability to imbue the songs’ major key melodies with a deep, underlying sadness, and by her vaguely hopeful lyrics, which leave questions hanging in the air over the dulcet reverberating guitar tones of Alex Scally, generating a kind of distant ambience.

It’s an updated, shoegazy sound that feels like an invitation to audiences to completely lose themselves in the music – but beware: it may take a certain level of emotional maturity and physical fortitude to endure all that celestial, head-nodding beauty in a venue with no seats.
