This spring, I traveled to Washington D.C. to see one of my favorite bands, Beach House, perform tracks from their latest album, dream pop sensation Teen Dream. What I didn’t expect was New Zealand band Bachelorette, who opened the concert with ebullient electro-pop songs that have been stuck in my head ever since. Tracks like “Complex History of a Dying Star” (above), overwhelm the ears with layered self-harmonies and synthetic sweetness, while “Donkey” and “Do the Circut” make me feel strangely nostalgic, like the way you feel after watching a Sofia Coppola movie.
