Reliably informed

It’s impossible to skirt around the fact that the last year for musical artists has been trying. However, it has been rejuvenating to see others rise from the ashes of despair and breakthrough to the mainstream consciousness; and none has been more gratifying to witness than that of alternative pop singer-songwriter beabadoobee.

After receiving rave reviews for her Leeds/Reading performances and in true post-pandemic fashion, beabadoobee will be hitting the UK motorways to support her 2020 breakthrough debut album, Fake It Flowers, and will drop in to Newcastle University Students’ Union on Saturday 2nd October.

Although she has since shed her humble DIY bedroom indie beginnings, Beatrice Laus has connected to her audience with her 90’s influenced slacker retro pop which wouldn’t feel out of place at the start of late decade teen flick. Soaring vocals are matched with intimate lyrics backed with a bubblegum grunge aesthetic of anthemic choruses, with luscious string arrangements that never intrude on the main chuck of the guitar. One can’t help but be whisked away in the hazy dream world that beabadoobee creates.
