Live Gig Video: Beach House release performance film inspired by Pink Floyd

Baltimore’s Beach House recently filmed themselves in the middle of the night, performing four songs to put together this atmospheric, Pink Floyd-inspired film called Forever Still. The duo would be better at explaining this than I ever could, so take it away, guys:

Forever Still is directly inspired by Pink Floyd’s Live at Pompeii. We wanted to perform in a non-typical setting and felt the songs would resonate in a more majestic and spiritual landscape. The experience was an intense three nights of filming. Everyone involved in production and crew was benevolent in their time and talented in their efforts. We were very lucky to have the help and hard work of many people who aided and lent their abilities to our vision. The basic concept is four songs performed from sunset to sunrise. We tried to keep the edits minimal with long takes in order to focus on the energy of the songs, the landscape, and the physicality of live performance. The entire film was shot in or around Tornillo, Texas, where we recorded ‘Bloom’. Like ‘Bloom’, we hope that ‘Forever Still’ is experienced as a whole, long form.

Watch the video, all of its 26 minutes of epicness, below. The band are scheduled to perform two dates – the 25th and the 26th of March – at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire.
