Capturing an essence of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Ultraviolence’, Freya Beer’s new single ‘Love Child’ drips with ultra-cool vibes as reverb drenched guitar lines create a dark, glam-rock backdrop for Freya’s sharp, effortlessly alluring vocal delivery. Accompanied by an equally entrancing video, the single’s sense of drama and swagger is multiplied – a stunningly slick visual that fits perfectly with the cinematic strings present across the track’s chorus.
Inspired by the tale of toxic relationships, the London-based artist manages to convey a hard-hitting message under a veil of smooth, sophisticated glamour that permeates through her style both sonically and visually. Speaking about the single and the message behind it, Freya shares:
“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.”
As comparable to Wolf Alice as she is to Nick Cave, Freya is a unique talent with a lot of potential for the future.
