Beat Connection Touring With STRFKR

    With Beat Connection’s debut, Surf Noir, out as of this past April, the duo has been steadily touring the globe in support of its release. And if tracks like “Silver Screen” are any indication, the gigs must be dance-heavy affairs. Hell, they even expanded to a three-piece by adding a drummer for their live shows, which should only make the pulsing percussion that much stronger. They’re joining like-minded beat-fanatics STRFKR on tour this September and it will take them across North America, something the Seattle-based Beat Connection is actually yet to do.


    You can view the tour dates and watch the “Silver Screen” video below. You can also listen to “Balearic Trunk Rhythm” on Pitchfork. Beat Connection’s Surf Noir is out now on Tender Age.
