New Beach House, "Norway"

Though no Merriweather Post Pavillion, I imagine the excitement for Beach House's January release, Teen Dream, will be measurable here on the web. From the sound of "Norway," it'd be a crime not to get at least a little pumped about it.

The song is dreamy pop, with a folksy edge to it. Though starting slow, it gains parts within seconds, and the result could be one of the indie scene's favorite tracks of 2010 (not to get ahead of myself, of course). It's a spirited flight-- not danceable, but it doesn't have to be. Simply put, it's elegantly enthusiastic.

You'll definitely want to check out the track below, courtesy of Pitchfork. Teen Dream comes out January 26th, by the way, via Sub Pop.
