A Beacon School is the dream-pop project of New York-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Patrick J. Smith. He’s recently returned with his first new song in three years with the pretty single “Dot”, which signals a new full-length album not too far off the horizon.
The track baths in a warm atmosphere built on a comforting synth and vocals. The sun-soaked track opens up and blossoms into something more expansive and dreamy, like a blend of Tycho, Toro y Moi and Washed Out.
About the track, Smith adds:
‘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.
