beabadoobee – “How Was Your Day?”
Bea Kristi, the London bedroom-pop phenom who records as beabadoobee, is a few weeks away from releasing Fake It Flowers, her full-length debut. beabadoobee is a viral star whose sound is explicitly influenced by lo-fi ’90s indie-pop and who has serious industry muscle behind her, so it’ll be fascinating to hear what happens when that LP is out in the world. We’ve already posted the early singles “Care,” “Sorry,” and “Worth It.” Today, she’s shared a video for another one called “How Was Your Day?”
“How Was Your Day?” is probably the most spectral of the songs we’ve yet heard from the album. It’s a shy, muttery, lo-fi track, and it’s mostly acoustic. On the song, beabadoobee sings about missing an ex and wanting them back again. It’s got a bit of a Mary Lou Lord quality to it, but it seems even more powerfully introverted than anything she might’ve sung.
In the “How Was Your Day?” video, we see beabadoobee in lo-res Super 8-style footage, hitting the recording studio and going about her day. We also see her sitting on a swing and staring off into nothingness. Check it out below.
Fake It Flowers is out 10/16 on Dirty Hit.
