Flood Magazine is premiering a new performance video by Beat Connection for their song “Ad Space.” The track is from the Seattle based ensembles acclaimed Anti- release Product 3 and delivers a sumptuous burst of their shimmering new wave soul sound.
The band’s Reed Juenger says of the song and video, “Ad Space is about expectations not lining up with reality. It's about life not being what they tell you it is on day time tv or late night radio ads. The video was shot live at an art gallery and event space in Seattle with light design and art direction from the band."

Critical Praise for Beat Connection:
"The songs are understated yet energetic, with an eccentric genre palette that deftly cuts a path through electronic pop, rock, hip-hop, and R&B without ever plunging head-on into any one sound. It's all catchy verses atop relaxed, feel-good instrumentation that lets its various components subtle shimmer in and out of the mix. The result is the most daring and sophisticated music of Beat Connection's career." - Stereogum
"Syrupy, strutting beats." - Billboard
"Reed Juenger's unshaken attention to production detail and Tom Eddy's electric brightness make for engaging frontmen, while the drum and bass tandem of Jarred Katz and Mark Hunter keep the foundation moving along like a bullet train... The world that Beat Connection occupy is bright, sleek, and completely separate, and you want to be there with them more with every song. If this is an omen of what's to come, then Beat Connection are just getting started on their way to greatness." - KEXP
"Feel-good, summer anthem-worthy sonic compositions." - Interview
"Effortless, heavenly pop with an artful bent." - Clash
