Beach HouseVisit artist site
Hailing from Baltimore, MD, Beach House plays an otherworldly brand of low-key, psychedelic dream pop that is dark, ethereal, and alluringly hypnotic. Comprised of the French-born Victoria Legrand and Baltimore native Alex Scally, the duo crossed paths in the Baltimore music scene in 2004 and have since been writing and performing together for over a decade. The recent release of their critically acclaimed albums, Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars, marks their 5th and 6th full-length albums respectively, and their 3rd and 4th LP’s out on Sub Pop Records.

After a stint as lead guitar player in Atlantic/ Showdog Record act, Army Of Me, Tursi moved to Nashville to write songs as well as play guitar for artists like Greg Bates and Brett Eldredge. Now an all around performing songwriter, Brad recently enjoyed his first three #1s with Tyler Farr’s “A Guy Walks Into A Bar”, Kenny Chesney’s “Save It For A Rainy Day” and Old Dominion’s “Break Up With Him”. In the last year, he’s also had songs recorded by Luke Bryan, David Nail, Maddie & Tae, Swon Brothers, Dallas Smith, William Michael, Josh Turner, Randy Houser and many others.

There’s never been a punk band like SWMRS. That’s probably because it’s too limiting to label the Oakland quartet, “a punk band.” You might initially detect the caustic broadsides of The Clash and the amphetamine bubblegum of the Ramones. But within the carefully penned lyrics, propulsive energy, and raw honesty, you can hear the echoes of Public Enemy and Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest to Kurt Cobain.
