beabadoobee releases new track and video from full length Fake It Flowers ahead of album release later this year.
By Bubba Krishnamurti
British-Philippino singer-songwriter beabadoobee agilely writes song structures in what can now seem to be an archaic format: guitar and voice. The glimmering music she writes is simultaneously 90s nostalgia while quintessentially 2020. After a string of notable singles and EPs, she has announced her first full length album: Fake It Flowers. Slated for release later this year via Dirty Hit Records, beabadoobee has released the track ‘Care’ along with a highly stylized, throwback video. The song has echoes of The Cranberries with both the vocal delivery and distinct production elements such as snare rim shots.
beabadoobee described the new track in a press release:
This song has end-of-a-’90s movie vibes, like you’re driving down a highway. It is pretty much me being angry at society, or people around me who I just don’t think know me and don’t care. I don’t want you to feel fucking sorry for me. I just want you to understand what I’ve been through. I never expected to be making the first video from my album during a pandemic! I was so lucky to be locked down with the bedroom guys, it feels like it turned out as one of the most personal, real videos I’ve made. I’m so excited to share it!
beabadoobee last released the EP Space Cadet EP in 2019.
