Beacon – L1
Brooklyn-based duo Beacon will release L1 EP on December 2nd via Ghostly International. This week, they premiered the title track on Stereogum, who note “It marks a fascinating progression for the duo: Whereas they once traded in space-age R&B with Rhye’s gentleness inhabiting lush digital pastures, “L1″ is smartly arranged electro-pop with a fervent tempo and an angsty undercurrent, like a brighter, more populist take on Thom Yorke’s dreary Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes.” L1 was mixed by Al Carlson who has worked on Autre Ve Neut’s Anxiety and St. Vincent’s Marry Me, among many other notable albums.
The band has also announced a round of North American tour dates in support of the record. The tour kicks off January 22nd in Portland, Oregon. A full run of dates can be found below.
