Beach House Is Big Overseas

Victoria Legrand '03's band Beach House sure was unknown when they first performed at Vassar in 2007, but now they're truly international stars. The group's song "Happy" was featured in the latest episode of Skins (the original UK series, not the new MTV one).

The official blog for the television show describes the choice of Beach House: "Another one from the LA hipsters, this song works so well by going against the emotion in the scene. Liv has just necked a bottle of vodka and is far from happy."

It was actually the second Beach House song to be used on the show. The group has also had their music on Gossip Girl.
