beabadoobee Debuts “How Was Your Day?”
Born in the Philippines and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as beabadoobee in 2017. At just 20 years old, she has built a dedicated Gen-Z fan base. Her forthcoming release Fake It Flowers, drops October 16, via Dirty Hit. Today, the singer/songwriter has shared the album track “How Wa s Your Day?”
“’How Was Your Day?’ is a track that explores all the relationships I neglected when I was away from home” Bea explains, “I wanted to emphasise the rawness of the lyrics with the song sonically which is why I recorded it on a four-track with all the little mistakes and vocal wobbles included. I wanted the music video to feel nostalgic to me, to include all the people I cared about, it took me back to the time I first started making music.”
Fake It Flowers influences include Elliott Smith, Daniel Johnston and Kimya Dawson of the Moldy Peaches – and was recorded on a four-track cassette recorder in her boyfriend’s garden when her studio was closed towards the beginning of the pandemic. Packed with a longing for reconnection and simpler times, the accompanying nostalgia-tinged music video, which features Bea in grainy, VHS-like, lo-fi quality, was directed by long-term collaborators bedroom and features footage of Bea and her loved ones together over the past few months.
