Blacklight Beat Patrol – “Sundays and Flapjacks”


Glistening synths and buzzing intrigue overlap enjoyably on “Sundays and Flapjacks,” a single that showcases the engaging electronic sound of Blacklight Beat Patrol. The East Providence-based band excels with a playfully dynamic electronic pop appeal throughout the track, which is part of their upcoming album, Whispers from the Void. Creative boundary-pushing in the electronic realm is an aim that succeeds here from Blacklight Beat Patrol, which was formed in 2021 by Scott Corneau.

The track’s atmospheric momentum is palpable from the get-go; perky percussive consistency and clanging synth-bass adorn with hypnotic effect as a glimmering synth envelopment takes hold. Old-school hip-hop rhythmic touches are evident at the two-minute turn, descending into a nocturnal engrossment thereafter that builds into a more bustling intersection of synths and rhythms. “Sundays and Flapjacks” is wholly enveloping, and has us looking forward to the incoming Whispers from the Void.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Electronic.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
