Like Beach House? Then Check Out These Five Artists

Beach House
Liz Flyntz
There's nothing we like more on weekends than losing ourselves in soothing dream-pop. Baltimore duo Beach House are among our current faves, turning out moody, spacey and, yes, dreamy indie rock. Here are five other artists — some that sound like Beach House, some that grab from the same set of influences — you may also like. Check them out.

Atlas Sound



When Bradford Cox isn't making guitar-based indie rock with the excellent Deerhunter, he's releasing loopy solo records under the Atlas Sound moniker. Unlike Deerhunter's occasionally abrasive music, Atlas Sound take a more chill approach.


Toro Y Moi



This one-man band is fronted by Chazwick Bundick, whose synth-fueled chillwave is a bit funkier than his peers'. Like Beach House, Toro Y Moi finds the human pulse beating beneath the rattle and hum of all the machines.


Twin Shadow



Here's another bedroom project led by one man. George Lewis Jr. makes '80s-influenced synth-pop that's a bit livelier than your typical Beach House song, but no less dreamy. Twin Shadow's 2012 album 'Confess' sounds like a lost relic from the New Wave era, complete with dance-floor hooks.


Twin Sister



Like Beach House, this Long Island-based quintet is fronted by a female singer. They also make moody synth-based indie pop that's more about building atmosphere than getting all worked up. One of their songs was recently sampled by rapper Kendrick Lamar.


Wild Nothing



Jack Tatum leads this Virginia-based group whose hazy indie pop occasionally drifts into the shoegaze territory of bands like My Bloody Valentine. Like Toro Y Moi and Twin Shadow, Wild Nothing is essentially a one-person bedroom band.
