Beach House have contributed original music for Omega Mart, an immersive psychedelic grocery store installation in Las Vegan created by art and entertainment company Meow Wolf. After the exhibit opened in February, Beach House and Meow Wolf have today (April 22) officially released ‘Marin’s Dreams’, a coming-of-age short story that takes place within Meow Wolf’s narrative world, featuring an original soundtrack and sound design by Beach House. Watch the film, directed by West and written by Kimberly Belflower, below.
The film’s official synopsis reads: “Marin Dram, granddaughter of recently missing Omega Mart CEO Walter Dram, has disappeared. But her dreams were left behind, revealing portals, aliens, and bisexual angst caught in a mirror beside her bed. Like many teenage girls, Marin has a difficult relationship with her overbearing mother Cecelia Dram, newly minted Dramcorp CEO. But unlike her mother, Marin has supernatural abilities – and they’re calling her. She just wanted to be normal, but normal was not an option.”
Beach House’s most recent LP was 2019’s 7. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Alex Scally and bandmate Victoria Legrand revealed they have been working on new music since completing their tour in 2019. “We’d like to get there,” Scally said of the possibility of a new album. “But you never want to say you’re there if you’re not there. Our goal is to make more music.”
