Zebra – Beach House

Watch/Listen here:

Beach House has been around since 2004. They fall into the most interesting labelling of ‘dream pop’. You can call them indie as well. This song came out last year and the sound really fits the dream label.

Lyrics here, more below:
You know you’re gold
You don’t gotta worry none
Oasis child
Born and so wild
Don’t I know you better than the rest?
All deception all deception from you

Your love is stag
In the white sand
Wilderness for miles
Eyes so mild and wise
Don’t I know you better than the rest?
All deception all deception from you

Anyway you run
You run before us
Black and white horse
Arching among us
Anyway you run
You run before us
Black and white horse
Arching among us

Your love is stag
In the white sand
Oasis child
Born into a man
Don’t I know you better than the rest?
All deception all deception from you

Wilderness for miles
Eyes so mild and wise
Oasis child
Born and so wild
Don’t I know you better than the rest?
All deception all deception from you

Anyway you run
You run before us
Black and white horse
Arching among us
Anyway you run
You run before us
Black and white horse
Arching among us

Anyway you run
You run before us
Black and white horse
Arching among us
Anyway you run
You run before us
Black and white horse
Arching among us

Definitely an intriguing, dreamy, diffuse song filled with images that in many ways are at odds with the music. I always love when the story feels in opposition to the music (I may have mentioned that once or twice!). For me this is a free spirit, running around, lying or hiding from the people around so they don’t get too close. One of those people you meet that draws you to them but they never let you in and they are always just far enough away to stay out of real trouble. The image of the horse arching really says that to me. Twisting and turning but never far away. A wild heart you can never get close to…
