“Alone” - A Beacon School | Review

A Beacon School returns with “Alone” a single from the upcoming album yoyo releasing October 13th. Alone is a dreamy indie rock track that reminds me of DIIV or Castlebeat, but slightly more upbeat. A Beacon School has a dream pop formula that I love. Some songs you can have on loop for hours and this is definitely one of them!

This is the first project in five years since A Beacon’s School first release and it’s one you do not want to miss. Be sure to give it a listen and play the lyric video on your tv for ambient lighting while you are being serenaded.

About A Beacon School:

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, lush shoegaze and intricately-arranged electronic soundscapes.

Smith began making music as A Beacon School in 2009. A home-recorded demo single was released in 2011, and a self-titled EP by a full-band lineup appeared near the end of 2012. Smith notably played with bands such as Modern Rivals and Bluffing, and currently works with Parquet Courts' Max Savage as part of Maxband.
