Harbottle & Jonas – The Beacon
Release Date: 20th November 2020
In times of troubled waters and stormy seas, it is reassuring to see Devon duo Harbottle & Jonas appear on the horizon like a lighthouse through the fog. Fittingly enough, their new single is named ‘The Beacon’ and its folky stylings atop rumbling percussion do feel as though they are guiding us to shore. The vocal harmonies intertwine beautifully as always but what is really noticeable is the sheer size of the musicianship which, when it is at full swell, feels like a powerful, undulating wave beneath the rickety old fishing boat we are clinging on to. With gentle breakdown building to a glorious crescendo, this feels like the moment that Harbottle & Jonas went from being a duo to existing as a full-blown band and although I loved them before, I think I might just love this new sound even more.
