Premiere: Beacon - Bring You Back

Stream the Brooklyn duo's shimmering new ballad here exclusively.

Under the light, overlapping rhythms of Beacon’s Bring You Back lies a pained story of lost love – harps, metallophones and the maudlin living side by side. It’s a style typical of the duo, who cloak tortured tales in cool melodies and point to the heavy thump of hip hop as a strong influence. This time, on the first track from their upcoming debut album ‘The Ways We Separate’, a gamelan-influenced body moves beneath a straining vocal effort to bring back someone who may be gone but is never forgotten – something like I Wish without the customary R Kelly pomp or theatrics. It’s lovely.
