Beacon have returned with their new song “Until Next Time.” The new single from Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett reveals a fresh aesthetic of contrasts. Kick drum tremors pair with intimate piano notes, swells of fuzzy static rise and crash into hushed vocals, and the whole earthly ensemble eventually floats right off the ground. This song signals the start of a new chapter with more music coming this year.
Beacon on “Until Next Time”
“It really captures some key dynamics of our new work,” Jacob reveals. Shifts between rich, delicate piano and intense electronic noise are defining characteristics of this genre-bending, soft-loud direction.”
The song arrives along with word of Beacon’s first tour dates in the two-plus years since the pandemic began. “It’s the first light, our atmospheric reentry,” says Thomas. And the accompanying music video further articulates the visual and emotional landscape the pair have been creating.
Directed by Jacob himself, it’s an engrossing cinematic experience that emerged from a key lyric: “With my face to the glass, both sides of the tether.” Thomas is matched with an uncanny doppelgänger, whose actions mirror, fracture, and distort his own. “It opens with them feverishly running towards one another,” Jacob explains, “drawn to this inevitable collision. Two characters so intertwined as to be almost one, their journey from connection to rupture.”
