about

“Travel is something that greatly colors the Beams catalog,” says Adam Brock, front man and principal songwriter of Charlottesville, VA indie pop band, Borrowed Beams of Light. In early 2013, Brock traveled with his wife to South Africa, where he found inspiration in the country’s dualities, particularly the unique juxtaposition of urban areas and untamed wilderness. On The Wings Of A Bug, the second full length from the band, creates a similar balance between pastoral folk, experimental textures, and catchy power pop.

Kicking off with the propulsive opener, “Songbird Bouquet”, the record travels across an ever-changing landscape of musical terrain, from the infectious and driving title track to the frenetic stomp of “Dogs Won’t Bite,” before moving into mellower territory with the hauntingly beautiful “Machines” and the ethereal “Getting There.”
