Beacon are back with their debut full-length record, The Ways We Separate, to be released on April 30th, 2013 on Ghostly International.

Having previously put out two well-received EPs, No Body and the Ghostly-released For Now, Beacon’s new album deals primarily with the ideas and themes of separation, with the complexity of how we separate from others at the heart of the record.

The first single from the album, “Bring You Back,” can be heard now at FADER, who note how it “opens with a gorgeous harp-thing hitting not exactly when you expect it, then rolls out crunchy kicks and pleading singing that sounds not unlike Thom Yorke.” DUMMY describe the “shimmering ballad” as “something like ‘I Wish’ without the customary R. Kelly pomp or theatrics. It’s lovely.”
