Beta Radio Return With New Single “Destined To Pretend”

May 8, 2020 BY Nettwerk

Wilmington, N.C. indie folk duo Beta Radio have shared their first new music since the release of their 2018 full length album Ancient Transmission. With “Destined to Pretend,” the pair have crafted a warm sonic backdrop from arpeggiated synth and strings as delicately plucked acoustic guitar upholds lilting vocals. “It’s a meditation on hope through sorrow and pain,” they explain.

Beta Radio will be releasing more music this year. Stay tuned for announcements, and for now enjoy “Destined to Pretend” below.

Rooted in vocal harmonies, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, banjo and an eclectic range of additional instrumentation and soulful arrangements, Beta Radio’s ethereal-folk sound is the result of a decade-long collaboration between Ben Mabry and Brent Holloman.
