I feel like we all have our “troublemaker” moments throughout life. I have learned from my personal experiences that whenever I try to get away with something that may fall in the “troublemaker” category, I get caught. Just like the lyrics of Beach House’s song “Troublemaker”: “Someday out of the blue, it will find you…” so, I just try to avoid those scenarios altogether so whatever trouble is lurking out there, doesn’t find me.
This track is one of my absolute favorites off of Beach House’s fourth full length album, ‘Bloom.’ It was beautiful day when this album was released back in 2012. Beach House consists of Baltimore-native Alex Scally and Paris-born Victoria Legrand. They released their first self-title album back in 2006 and since then, have been known for their lush and dreamy sound. Their songs have a dark quality to them but not the kind of dark you would be afraid of. It’s the kind of dark that’s mysterious, full of secrets and draws you in. I can’t say enough good things about this band so if you like this song at all, I highly recommend looking into their other albums. My favorite part of their “About” section on Facebook is this: Under the “Artists We Like Category” it says: “So so so many. Please don’t ever stop searching out great music, both new and old. And don’t listen to what other people say.” I couldn’t agree with this more.
Stay out of trouble, listeners.
