Dot by A Beacon School








Patrick J. Smith, a New York-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, is the artist behind A Beacon School, an up-and-coming dreampop outfit. The project's full length debut, Cola, features tracks that shift from upbeat jangly pop to dreamy shoegaze.

Dot is the first release from A Beacon School in three years, and it corresponds with a headline concert at The Sultan Room in Brooklyn on Friday April 8th, 2022, indicating the arrival of the anticipated new album. The five-minute song finds A Beacon School at its most lush and refined, with a clear instrumental backdrop and soft vocals shining through.

The artist comments: “Dot is a song about seeing patterns in your life emerge but feeling helpless to change them. The song oscillates between these moments of unfiltered wonder and inspiration, and the immediate skepticism that follows them."
