New York City-based A Beacon School is back with his first single in three years. “Dot”, an ethereal dreampop track that ebbs and flows between lush shoegazey soundscapes and airy electronic, marks the return of the multi-instrumentalist. Expansive and immersive, “Dot” is out now everywhere via Grind Select.
On the track, A Beacon School says, “‘Dot’ is a song about seeing patterns in your life emerge but feeling helpless to change them. The song oscillates between these moments of unfiltered wonder and inspiration, and the immediate skepticism that follows them.”
A Beacon School is the dream pop project of New York-based songwriter and multi instrumentalist Patrick J. Smith. The songs on releases such as his full-length debut, Cola, alternate between uptempo, jangly pop nuggets and lush shoegaze.
