Beach House – Saturn Song

Wow, those last few tunes were certainly dark and heavy. I’ve flooded you enough for one day, so let’s finish off the night with something completely surreal and magical. Consider this a good night song and the perfect tune to drift off to sleep to once over.  To sleep, perchance to dream, and dream you will, after hearing this. Amazing and revered Baltimore dream pop duo Beach House contributed Saturn Song to the Space Project, a compilation of music by an array of artists (ie. The Antlers, Mutual Benefit, Youth Lagoon) that features sound recorded in space by the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 probes. It’s certainly an odd and artistic idea, but so far, it seems to have worked out very well. Saturn Song truly seems to defy gravity. Victoria Legrand’s infinitely dreamy vocals and the pillowy production gives an indescribable feeling of weightlessness. I also find that the song has an edge to it, almost like that feeling you get when you step into the unknown. I can only imagine that it would be a good representation of the unfamiliar beauty and vastness of space itself, an unforgiving, breathtaking ocean but a billion times more colossal. Like I said, it’s magical.
