    On the Frame (Acoustic)
Home represents more than just a physical place.
It encompasses a state of being and an ideal. When you feel home, you feel whole. Humanity intrinsically seeks that feeling. This eternal search inspires Beta Radio’s third full-length and first for NETTWERK, Ancient Transition. The Wilmington, NC duo—Benjamin Mabry and Brent Holloman—transform a tumultuous two years of corporeal and existential wandering into 10 songs cast in folk-style literary lyricism, Americana spirit, and orchestral experimentation.
Mabry and Holloman met at summer camp in the North Carolina mountains and immediately formed a musical kinship, one that propelled them throughout high school and college, where they found themselves in and out of multiple hard rock and metal bands, an ironic juxtaposition to the ethereal folk sound where they ultimately settled. Later, through a cycle of “on again, off again” writing and demoing during and after college, they had a collection of songs ready for a studio, and in the winter of 2009 they sat down to record their debut album, Seven Sisters. Seven Sisters was recorded and distributed without label support and enjoyed a grassroots success built largely on the back of internet music services Pandora and Spotify. Soon after, their second studio record Colony of Bees was released. Colony of Bees was called "sonically lovely" by the Huffington Post and was included in the top ten roundup of their 40 "Best Albums of 2014."
