In a week of big tour announces, Beach House‘s first ever WA headline (by our calculations) is going to be a big one for many. The dream-pop outfit are set to play Chevron Gardens on Thursday, February 28 for Perth Festival 2019.
Since emerging out of Baltimore in 2004, Beach House duo Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally have released seven albums, with this year’s 7 an early album of the year contender when it was released in May. Check out our 9/10 review HERE.
Their new creative endeavours haven’t only seen Beach House explore a different sound for their new album, but have also seen them part ways with their long-time producer Chris Coady, instead teaming up with Peter Kember aka Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3 (Panda Bear, MGMT).
Reflecting on the change in direction for 7, Legrand says: “There was a fatigue there, and a desire not to be repetitive … (we) wanted to eliminate anything that could be perceived as limiting to our creativity.”
Joined by touring drummer James Barone, Legrand and Scally will bring their songbook to kaleidoscopic life when they explode onto the stage for a glorious cinematic live show.
7 is out now. Beach House play Chevron Gardens on Thursday, February 28. Tickets on sale Monday, October 22 from perthfestival.com.au.
