Matthew Dear


A thick-fingered electric bass gallops in atop a driving backbeat as Dear sneers, "It's alright to be someone else sometimes." It may be odd to hear former techno-wunderkind Matthew Dear playing rock music, but the manic punk pulse of "Earthforms" is just one facet of Beams’ kaleidoscopic journey. Shot through with equal parts optimism and uneasiness, Beams is the latest transmission from one of pop music's most fascinating creative minds.

"Earthforms" is the third single taken from Beams.
