Few weeks ago I described Project Maldonado as a darker version of the subtle duo Rhye. With Beacon it is not that simple but I would place them somewhere in the middle. Their music is rather sweet but there is something intriguing in the melodies that gets you actually involved in the listening to their brand new debut album The Ways We Separate.
The duo consists of Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett who met each other at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute where they studied sculpture and painting. As you see, their background is not obvious but maybe that is the key to the sound they are creating. Art at its best!
