Rex Manning Day music blog included Borrowed Beams of Light’s “Drawing Blanks” in their Top Indie Pop Tracks of 2014!

With a black-and-white music video and an impressive whistle that will leave you with a shit-eating grin on your face from start to finish (you’ve been forewarned…) this poppy track definitely stood out to us during the first half of 2014. The group is based out of Virginia, and you can buy their new album for $10 via Bandcamp.

Fabricoh Magazine reviews new Borrowed Beams of Light album


Fabricoh Magazine reviews Borrowed Beams of Light’s new album On The Wings Of A Bug:

On the Wings of a Bug fluctuates through different textures and approaches while consistently being catchy and easy to get into. “Songbird Bouquet” begins the album with high energy and the remaining songs continue to balance fast paced toe-taps with more mellow tones. Expect mostly riff-driven songs laced in harmonies. The lo-fi vocals are smooth and compliment the variety of guitar and keyboard styles found here. Though this record is lighthearted and fun, those who listen from beginning to end will find it has space laid out for introspection.

The Sound of Confusion reviews Borrowed Beams of Light’s new album On The Wings of a Bug:

On The Wings of A Bug is filled with glittering noisy pop tunes with a light folkish layer, as well as other key influences such as Lindsey Buckingham, Destroyer & Robyn Hitchcock. There is no evidence of lurking shadows in this collection; these songs are made to be physically and mentally addictive. You will find yourself listening to these songs over and over again…This album is covered with catchy hooks and memorable songs. It’s a joyous and harmonious listen; a vibrating euphoria of pop that revisits a basket of influences…well-crafted and built for playlists everywhere. I highly recommend this frothing assortment of songs that is simply sweet and jubilant.

Grayson Currin of Indy Week on Borrowed Beams of Light’s new album

Grayson Currin of Indy Week weighs in on Borrowed Beams of Light’s new album in advance of their Raleigh show this Friday:

Of the 13 tracks on the excellent second album by Borrrowed Beams of Light, On the Wings of a Bug, only the last song breaks the four-minute mark. That economy stems largely from the dual impulses of frontman Adam Brock: He’s got the power-pop punch to write a tune as infectious and inescapable as the title track and the experimental wonderment to nest little melodies inside ruptured dream machine expanses, too. He keeps these proclivities largely discrete, though, resulting in music that provides immediacy and obscurity in equal, if separate measures.

Kemptation reviews Borrowed Beams of Light album

Kemptation reviews Borrowed Beams of Light’s new album On The Wings Of A Bug, calling Songbird Bouquet “riff heavy, hand clapping, stomping power pop interspersed with quieter moments of lush harmonies and bells” and the title track “a great song to showcase what a talent [songwriter Adam Brock] truly is…The melody is catchy and strong, and the chorus is a real singalong affair.”
