Halifax, NS-based quartet, Beauts return with “Paragon,” a dreamy, atmospheric single perfectly suited for summer rainy night drives.
Mixed byJace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes, “Paragon” finds Beauts leaning into their affinity for melodic and textured indie rock.
“Paragon” marks the first new music from Beauts since the release of their award-winning debut LP, Dalliance, in 2020. The new single also chronicles the heralded band as they chart their ever-expanding sonic and thematic growth.
“It feels like we’re settling into the idea that this band can sound like a lot of different things, as opposed to a strict style or genre, and that’s been really exciting for us,” says Beauts singer Jeff Lawton. “I’ve also been trying to move away from writing about self-deprecation and self-criticism, and instead trying to look outward and write about the people around me. I’m very clearly writing about my partner here, chronicling our relationship and expressing my awe for her. Being forced to stay indoors for the past couple years has given me time to appreciate how fortunate it is to have someone in your life you love, admire, and are happy to be around all the time.”
