the latest transmission from one of pop music's most fascinating creative minds is light & bright with dancefloor-ready tempos, major keys, & sun-warmed synths.

contrasting to the darker edge of its predecessor, dear's latest productions on 'beams' creak & groan to a steady house pulse like anxious organisms, with slivers of guitar, electric bass, & drum kit darting in & out among the synths & samples, while matthew croons in his rich, nu-romantic baritone. "'beams' is an uncompromising, forceful & darkly beautiful album from a formidable musical talent" 5/5 - music omh "a beautiful, complex, weird & bold album" - clash.
