London’s Freya Beer combines eerie melodies and confident rock overtures to create her undeniably evocative yet radio-ready indie tunes. Since 2018, when she released her debut single “Bike Boy”, the musician has been independently putting out music that walks the line between gothic and glamorous. She’s inspired by films especially like Suspria, The Love Witch and Valley of the Dolls, well known for their femme fatale central characters. That’s not to say that Freya Beer is all about main character energy, in fact her brand new single “Love Child” is about cutting those inflated egos down to size.
“My new single ‘Love Child’ is an important release as it touches upon the subject of “gaslighting”. In comparison to my previous releases, this is not a love song. The lyrics speak from the experience of coming across individuals in life who undermine and try to claim your knowledge and creativity by opposing themselves as the victim in the situation they’ve caused. The subject of the song is something which I haven’t touched upon in my songwriting before but being able to share it on a wider platform and become a story which people can relate to is a way of telling my story.”
“Love Child” is built around heavily reverberted guitars, high-drama violins, theatrical drums (Owain Hanford) and brooding bass lines (Arnoldas Daunys). All of this is brought together through the production of Peter Hobbs (The Boy Least Likely To).
The music video is directed by George Mills and produced by Say Goodnight Films.
