Escapements, Beacon's second album, continues the move towards the dance floor heard on last year's L1 EP. Where the lyrical themes of The Ways We Separate dealt with distance and isolation, mirrored in the music's sparse arrangements, Escapements is preoccupied with time and entropy (the title itself is a reference to clock mechanics). Beacon set those ideas to music with increased energy. Drum & bass, in its lightest possible form, gives "Cure" a jittery sensation. The breakbeats—provided by Tycho drummer Rory O'Connor—hit pretty hard in "You're Wondering," ending the album with Beacon's version of a dance floor crescendo. "Preserve" also suggests the duo aren't strangers to club music, with its clipped house beat and a structure that has more small peaks and troughs than their earlier tunes.
