You’ll like Beacon if you like: Bob Moses, Nicolas Jaar, The Antlers, Lower Dens
When Beacon would be played in a film: The protagonist is running away from his troubles, and has just jumped into a car at midnight, to speed through a thick forrest down a misty, windy road.
Beacon has a new album out, ‘Escapements.’ This electronic group from Brooklyn creates eerie, melodic tunes played underneath male vocals. They provide a wonderful balance between light and dark, and remains accessible to the average listener. And did we mention this music is sexy? Lots of smooth going on. Beacon is a part of Ghostly International, a great record label hailing from NYC.
Our favorite tune off Escapements is L1, a song with a little more bass than others on the album.
