Beat Connection Sign To Anti-

PREMIERE NEW SONG "SO GOOD" VIA INTERVIEW

Beat Connection is thrilled to announce that they have signed to ANTI-­ Records. This fall, ANTI-­ will release the band's much anticipated new album, which showcases an even more sophisticated turn in Beat Connection's signature sleek electropop sound. More details on the record release are forthcoming, but in the meantime Beat Connection premiered a brand new track called "So Good" today via Interview Magazine, who said, "the song lyrically delves into almost every feeling one experiences throughout the course of a relationship, but differentiates itself with feel-­good, summer anthem-­worthy sonic compositions."

Beat Connection producer Reed Juenger says of "So Good," "The inspiration for this song is the feeling another person gives you, the longing, the love,

"So Good" follows previous tracks "Hesitation," "Another Go Round," and "Illusion," all of which will appear on the band's new album and have received rave reviews:

"'Another Go Round' is nothing if not the sound of a band confidently moving forward." -­ Stereogum

"'Illusion' is aptly named, providing you with a three minute fantasy that your world is as exuberant and psychedelic as the band's widescreen soundscapes." -­ Spin

"The band's otherwise bubbly synth parts are paired with funky grooves, handclap drums, and off-­kilter studio effects, lending both increased sex appeal and a bit more quirkiness." -­ Consequence of Sound (on "Hesitation")

Next week, Beat Connection will kick off a tour opening for Django Django and also playing Lollapalooza in Chicago:
