Brooklyn's Electro Duo Beacon

Brooklyn's Electro Duo Beacon

Brooklyn duo Beacon’s first EP (released last fall) has already gained a reputation for putting listeners into something of a hypnotic state, its subtly warm melodies hummed endlessly over morning coffee, in the shower or while riding the subway. It is no surprise then that the band’s first single from their new album, “The Ways We Separate,” pairs rich, Sade-like vocals with a smooth chillwave beat, lyrics once again hanging romantic desire somewhere out there on the metaphysical plane. Though such dreaminess may at times seem to defy gravity, Beacon’s bleeps, blops and drones evoke a sunlit energy that drips with a kind of rococco eroticism. Ride the clouds with them at the album’s release show, May 4th, Mercury Lounge. - Brian Chidester
