Beacon - Be My Organ

‘BE MY ORGAN’

Beacon have released their new single ‘Be My Organ’, from their forthcoming album Gravity Pairs (out 2 November 2018). Premiered on KCRW Los Angeles, ‘Be My Organ’ elevates on a percussive build, reaching its peak in the final strobe­ lit minute.

Returning home to New York in 2016, the Beacon duo of Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett embarked on open-ended sessions, adopting a more linear style of songwriting compared to their previous loop and texture-driven method. They fundamentally constructed demos from piano chords and guitar phrases with vocal melodies, editing iterations almost ad infinitum, looking through each from a multitude of angles. Compositions expanded, while others pared back to where they began. Like the bending of light, this abstractive and patient process outlines a space and scale in which seemingly separate colours — minimalist ballads, elaborate pop spirituals, and driving dance sequences — can coexist at different speeds, fanning out with spectral cohesion.

On Gravity Pairs, Beacon channel the philosophy with pure pop mystique, slicing through dense and foggy dance and electronic music apparatuses to create something familiar but unique, melodic but cathartic. Rippling through these songs are iridescent synthesizer lines, stoic piano phrasing, dazzling percussion, posh harpsichord, understated xylophone, and a crisp voice in complete control. Taken as a whole, in their various combinations and compressions, these complementary and secondary tones unlock the lushest field of colour, a universe of light.
