about

With a deep rumble of electronic noise and a billowing whirl of starlit melody, we are once again invited into the world of Beacon through "Until Next Time." The poignant new single from Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett reveals a fresh aesthetic of contrasts. Kick drum tremors pair with intimate piano notes, swells of fuzzy static rise and crash into hushed vocals, and the whole earthly ensemble eventually floats right off the ground. "It really captures some key dynamics of our new work," Jacob reveals. "Shifts between rich, delicate piano and intense electronic noise are defining characteristics of this genre-bending, soft-loud direction."

But there's even more to "Until Next Time" than its arresting music. The song arrives along with word of Beacon's first tour dates in the two-plus years since the pandemic began. "It's the first light, our atmospheric reentry," says Thomas. And the accompanying music video further articulates the visual and emotional landscape the pair have been creating. Directed by Jacob himself, it's an engrossing cinematic experience that emerged from a key lyric: "With my face to the glass, both sides of the tether." Thomas is matched with an uncanny doppelgänger, whose actions mirror, fracture, and distort his own. "It opens with them feverishly running towards one another," Jacob explains, "drawn to this inevitable collision. Two characters so intertwined as to be almost one, their journey from connection to rupture."

lyrics

There’s a darker way now
But darkness settles
With my face to the glass
Both sides of the tether

A morning sun
Fresh with blood

On prevailing winds
No sea’s too far
That I won’t go
Bring embers for you
We’re better off lost

My face to the glass
The darkness calls
With both hands I dig
Back to the core

My face to the glass
The darkness calls
With both hands I dig
Back to the core

No sea’s too far
That I won’t go
Bring embers for you
We’re better off lost

Beacon Brooklyn, New York

Brooklyn duo Beacon explore the dark side of sweet melody with a sound thats as seductive as it is subtly discomfiting. They fuse the deceptively sweet melodies of R&B with an intoxicating undercurrent of darkness, drawing on influence as disparate as Warps back catalogue and Underworld. ... more
