In May of 2018, Beach House released their seventh studio album, 7. Directly following the LP’s debut, the band took to the road for an expansive run of shows — including a particularly special performance at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre venue. Now, the band are teaming up with Pitchfork to unveil a new live concert film made up of high-quality, masterfully-shot footage of the event. Fittingly-titled Beach House Live at Kings Theatre, Beach House’s new visual captures their summer showcase in NYC in its entirety and all of its glory; for the setlist, the group’s two members serve up a well-curated mix of cuts from their lengthy discography.
“I think being creative and falling in love with things and feeling alive are so important, now more than ever,” Beach House’s Victoria Legrand told Pitchfork in April of 2018, reflecting place in the world as an artist. “You don’t get to control how much darkness or light exists in the universe, they’re inherently part of the fabric of everything. But we all need art and dancing and joy. 2017 was a very strange year, but I will always think of it as one of my favorites. We were just working and having fun and experimenting. I see no better way to be spending life on the planet than to be playing with things in your life. You have to do something, and our doing is making music. We’re not politicians, we’re not orators.”
