On 2010’s Black City, the longtime dancefloor adventurer Matthew Dear worked up a slickly dark and unique form of techno-pop. He’ll follow that album up later this summer with another one called Beams. And on first single “Her Fantasy,” he goes even deeper into the slinky underworld of Black City, creating a six-minute synthpop anthem that’s equal parts glossy and murky. Listen to it below.
Beams is out 7/28 on Ghostly.
