New indie duo music from North Carolina
The theme of eternal search inspires Beta Radio’s third full-length and first for the Nettwerk label, "Ancient Transition." The Wilmington, NC, duo—Benjamin “Ben” Mabry and Brent Holloman—transform a tumultuous two years of physical and spiritual wandering into ten songs cast in folk-style literary lyricism, Americana spirit, and orchestral experimentation. On the journey, they creatively cover new ground. "Throughout the whole process, there was an undercurrent of being displaced, because I moved four times," says Ben. "While we were on the search, we let go of what we thought Beta Radio should sound like, experimented, and started simply pursuing what we like," adds Brent. "For the first time, we utilized samples, an Una Corda, and old Juno 60 synthesizers from the eighties. We really expanded our sound."
