Beat Connection are what I always wanted chillwave to be. With most music of their genre I feel like I get lost in the songs. Not lost as in I am so deep in the thoughts provoked by said music, lost as in I sometimes forget what the hell I’m listening to and turn it off.
But the first time I listened to Beat Connection‘s EP, Surf Noir, I put it on and 30 minutes later, I realized I hadn’t once thought of stopping it. In a time where it’s hard to get someone to listen to just one whole song, this Pacific Northwest duo have made an eight track EP that is fantastic from start to finish.
Jumping from the Daft Punk vibe of “Theme From Yours Truly”, to the blissed-out opening track “Sunburn”. My personal favorite, “Silver Screen” is a track that can’t help but make you feel like it’s summer and the sun is shining down on you. Since I like Beat Connection and live in Seattle, it’s a feeling that is both hard to come by and highly necessary this time of the year.
