Now established as one of pop music’s most fascinating creative minds, Beams finds Dear with “a new band, a new album, a new live show, an overflow of unreleased material, remixes to work on, a new house in the woods, a happy dog, a loving wife, and a wish list of synthesizers. In other words,” he says, “positive change surrounds me, and it is creatively inspiring.”
The new band sees Dear on vocals, guitar and electronics, with Greg Paulus (of No Regular Play) on trumpet, joined by Ian Chang (Drums), Samer Ghadry (Percussion, Vocals), and Danny Scales (Bass, Vocals). Jason Powers still handles the mixing desk and remains an integral a part of the team. “I have never felt more certain of myself on stage as I now do,” Dear says. “There are so many ways to convey music in a live setting, and it has to impact the viewer theatrically.”
Recorded in Dear’s home studio and mixed at Nicolas Vernhes’ (Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, Deerhunter) Rare Book Room studios in Brooklyn, Beams evokes a day-lit dreamworld, at once strange and familiar. While the album’s dancefloor-ready tempos, major keys, and sun-warmed synths signal Beams as the lighter, brighter response to Black City, closer inspection reveals a squirming mass of oddball details. Dear’s productions creak and groan like anxious organisms, with slivers of guitar, electric bass, and drum kit darting in and out among the synths and samples.
A true vanguard, Dear can’t help but be, as he notes on one of the album’s song titles, ‘Ahead of Myself’. Let’s go with him as he pushes things forward.
