The dynamic intensity of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, better known as dream pop duo Beach House, is perfectly encapsulated in the imagery their name suggests — turbulence and tranquility with a view.

The band has a vast catalogue of dizzying and layered emotional soundscapes that sound as though they have a full band backing them. Beach House swapped the sea for the steering wheel on their latest record, 2018’s 7,with its heady, road-trip feel. By departing ever-so-slightly from the religious overtones of 2015’s Depression Cherry, and far removed from the untethered catharsis of 2012’s Bloom, Beach House uses 7 as a vehicle to forge new territory. 



Beach House will perform at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19 at Royal Oak Music Theatre; 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak; 248-399-2980; royaloakmusictheatre.com; Tickets are $32.
