The film feels authentic, grounded in specific cultural experiences like food, clothing, and a mix of Spanish and English. But it blindsided me with universal questions that reached far beyond one neighborhood in NYC. How should we balance our ambitions and our need to feel connected to our community? Have I abandoned my tribe in search of my career? I was crying happy tears for hours afterward. Reinvigorate your love for musical theatre with this brilliant cinematic experience.”
2. Isaac Bont our Marketing Director says, “Beach House is an indie rock band that has some very dream pop qualities to them. I say dream pop qualities because they say in interviews, they don't like being called a dream pop band. Their sound is reminiscent of a hot summer night cruising along the road with the windows down with someone you love but have to let go. Their sound is very dreamlike, nostalgic, mysterious, catchy earworm that feels like it lives smack dab in the middle of dichotomies: happy/sad, love/heartbreak, hope/despair, etc. At any point in their songs, it feels like their balance could tilt either way, but the songs always ride a line of tension like that. It helps that many of their songs are beautiful and very catchy and musically interesting. My favorite songs (probably in this order) are Myth, Space Song, Master of None, and Lemon Glow. Check them out!”
