Friday Tunes: The Simonsound ‘The Beam’

September 13, 2013

Back in May we told you about "The Beam” from Brighton based sound crafters The Simonsound. Unfortunately, due to difficulties with some record pressing plant's underwhelming quality control the project was delayed. Finally, after much hair tearing and teeth grinding, they found the right manufacturer and the single has been released, with rave reviews.

The A-side takes you on a sound-scape journey travelling on The Simonsound Transit Authority's Monorail through different worlds in a Disney-esque theme park. Each of the clear vinyl 10"s come with a souvenir guide book to help you through your trip.

The delays have had a silver lining though and along with "In The Shadow Of The Skylon" on the flip side, you will now find extra bonus sounds and out-takes from "The Beam". It has also meant that The Simonsound have had time to create the accompanying video for the release. Turn on, tune in and ride The Beam.

Available to buy from The Simonsound website
