Gravity Pairs

The duo that is Beacon have changed it up a little from their previous two albums, setting out to create songs from moment one rather than focusing on loop-driven compositions. So should we say Beacon have gone pop? Well, perhaps a bit, but that would be to undermine the impressive attention to detail that has gone into the sound and textures of Gravity Pairs’ tracks. On Ghostly.


Beacon are a pair of New Yorkers, crafting sleek electro-pop with a lithe twist. For Escapements, their second album, they’ve enlisted extra help from Rory O’Connor, the drummer from Tycho, bringing some live percussion into the electronic mix. Released by the Ghostly International label.


A single plumb of longing from Brooklyn toys Beacon. L1 EP is a cross-continental gushing wound of subdued heart-string-tuggers. Their softly undulating vocals, post-dubsteppian drums and reverberating synths slowly cleanse your haggard soul. They sound like a downtrodden Caribou jams mixed with some Inc. and James Blake. It's well mellow, and well dramatic, too -- it's out on 12" vinyl from Ghostly International.
