Electro-pop quartet Beat Connection has released a new video for “The Palace Garden, 4am,” the first single off its debut The Palace Garden LP, out August 6th with Tender Age/Moshi Moshi. Directed by Jon Meyer, the swirling clip utilizes stop-motion photography to simulate the band levitating and spinning in their hometown of Seattle. Topping Hype Machine charts for weeks, “The Palace Garden, 4am” has been praised by Pitchfork, Consequence of Sound and more, with BlackBook raving the song’s “immersive, dreamy compositions” and Stereogum commenting on its “chugging, sparkly synthetic.” Beat Connection just wrapped up its first North American headlining tour with White Arrows and MMOTHS including its first sold-out NYC show. The band will be perform live on KEXP on August 4th at 8pm.

Beat Connection began when members Jordan Koplowitz and Reed Juenger met in 2008 as freshmen at the University of Washington and started making late-summer-appropriate house music in Garageband. Creating dorm-room beats and venturing into DJing gigs, together they worked towards their last year’s Surf Noir EP, which received accolades from Pitchfork, KEXP, Death + Taxes, The Seattle Times and The Seattle Weekly, deeming them “Best New Band of 2011.” With the recent addition of Tom Eddy as lead vocalist, and drummer Jarred Katz, the newly minted quartet arrives with an album that finds them meditating on the idea of unattainable beauty, an idea that encases magical evenings, flooding happiness, and heavy regrets.
