After a few months of teasing Brooklyn duo Beacon have now released their new album “Along The Lethe” and it is just as stunning as we were expecting it to be.
“Along The Lethe” is a generous 11-track collection of Beacon’s atmospheric electronica that is just so easy to get lost in. The instrumentation is so delicately smooth and Thomas Mullarney’s voice is just so ethereally captivating, and as he reveals below the album was inspired by a book called “The Wake” by Paul Kingsnorth.
“I was haunted by this feeling of history intruding on our reality as lockdown descended on NYC, I was reading a book called The Wake by Paul Kingsnorth about the apocalyptic aftermath of the Norman Invasion of England in 1066, written in a ‘shadow tongue’ combining old and modern english. This uncanniness followed me through the pandemic.” ~ Beacon
