Rock star style
Our next edition focuses on the Brooklyn-based duo of Beacon. Think of Beacon's music as a 21st century mix of wide-ranging '90s influences from electronica to R&B. The result is a wonderfully moody, atmospheric sound, as evidenced by the must-hear song "Feeling's Gone." The guys are even able to turn Katy Perry's sprightly "Last Friday Night" into a melancholy post-party elegy. (You should also check out Beacon's covers of Portishead's "The Rip" and Ginuwine's "So Anxious.") The group plays Co-Prosperity Sphere in Bridgeport on Dec. 14 with How To Dress Well in support of the EP For Now. We caught up with them recently to get their take on style.
