beabadoobee Closes Out The Double Happiness Stage At HITC
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… Closing out the action on the Double Happiness stage was beabadoobee, and Bea Kristi p/k/a “beabadoobee” brought just that. A double serving of happiness.
I fell in love with beabadoobee’s debut album, Fake It Flowers, on my first listen. For me, there was a real sonic familiarity with that album. There was something about its sound that I connected with. There’s a sense of adventure and newness to it, kind of like it was like an alt-rock love child from the 90s when bands were experimenting with sounds and personal motifs. She takes this sonic approach to another level with her 2021 EP Our Extended Play, pushing musical elements with even more gusto.
Of course, she played the song that kick-started her musical career, “Coffee”, and songs from her debut album (i.e. “Care” & “Dye It Red”) and her latest EP (“He Get Me So High”), but I was particularly happy that one of my favorites, “She Plays Bass”, a song that I feel screams my youth, was also on her setlist.
This young lady’s got a lot going for her, and I certainly hope that’ll be able to catch more live gigs from her…”
