13th Floor New Song Of The Day: Beacon Bloom – Rocket

We start the working week with new music from Christchurch-based Beacon Bloom.

The song is Rocket and Beacon Bloom is Ryan Ferris and James Allen. Here’s the record company blurb with more info:

BEACON BLOOM is the musical outlet of New Zealand natives Ryan Ferris & James Allen.

‍Ryan has spent the last 5 years in 22 countries as a musical nomad – writing and performing in the opposite seasons of Australasia and Europe.

Born in the UK and bred in NZ, James is a lawyer by day and multi-instrumentalist by night – music is ever present in his veins.

The early hours of Berlin, haziness of Lisbon, the hum of Prague and Sydney and the sleepiness of hometown Christchurch have all culminated in BEACON BLOOM – a bedrock of groove and punchy bass; layered and soaring vocals cresting over wavey analog synths.  Electronica carved from pop, chillwave, space disco, house and funk.

‍In Dec 2018 ‘JOBIM’ which was picked up by 4 radio stations around New Zealand, spawned two radio interviews and was playlisted by leading Australian electronic music blog STONEY ROADS.

Following in February 2019 was ‘MATERIA (Live)‘ a boiler room-esk video shot at Beacon Bloom’s launch show in November. HAPPY MAG AUSTRALIA wrote a piece on the track alongside MUZIC and NZ MUSICIAN.

These releases are followed by ‘ROCKET’ in June, ‘TEL AVIV’ in August, ‘LITTLE KINGDOM’ in October and ‘ARE YOU READY FOR HER’ as a summer release. The band will perform and curate a stage at the brand new SOMETHING ELSE FESTIVAL in November and are looking to secure more festival dates across the season.
