They produced their standard debut that November without Body, a hushed but deeply rhythmic four-track EP released through the Moodgadget label. Through the entire following season, the duo toured the U.S., starting for famous brands Platinum Panda, Tycho, and Oneohtrix Stage Never. That Oct, they associated with Ghostly International, who released the five-track FOR THE PRESENT TIME EP. Beacon’s hushed 1st album, The Methods We Separate, premiered in Apr 2013. Another EP, released in Dec 2014, presented some relatively energetic occasions that presaged the quicker tempos and even more physical sounds noticed on second recording Escapements, released in Feb 2016.
