deareathformscover New Music: Matthew Dear   Earthforms

As previously reported, avant-pop crooner/producer Matthew Dear will follow up January’s Headcage EP with the release of his fifth studio album, Beams, on August 28th via Ghostly International. After leading off with the sugary lead single “Her Fantasy” (and a Kenneth Anger-inspired accompanying vid), Dear has now unveiled the album’s second track in “Earthforms”. Pairing together the repetition of EDM with a jagged post-punk bassline, the track’s perfectly suited for dance clubs and dive bars the world over. Download your mp3 copy below in exchange for an email address.

In support of the record, Dear will begin an extensive North American tour this week and won’t stop until mid-November. Check out the newly updated tour schedule below.
