'Reminders' is the second single from BECAH's upcoming debut EP 'Freak', due out later this year.
Armagh indie/alternative artist BECAH is releasing a stunning new single, titled 'Reminders', with an accompanying video premiered by Hot Press below.
Due to land on August 12th, 'Reminders' marks the second single from her upcoming debut EP 'Freak'. The powerful song makes fine use of BECAH's hypnotically tender vocal, backed up by electronic synths, electric guitar and vulnerable lyrics. Re-living hugely difficult experiences, BECAH digs deep on her latest offering to find herself after the loss of her autonomy.
"I wrote ‘Reminders’ in the aftermath of a very toxic relationship with a past girlfriend," the musician tells Hot Press. "The coinciding music video, filmed by Chris McCann and directed by John Dynes and Chris McCann, presents a glimpse into that story - the good times I had with her in the beginning, to its violent turn. The lyrics speak of the struggle I had to feel like myself again, and how all my attempts to push away all the little details and memories of that time felt futile."
The clip sees BECAH alone in a cinema, exploring record stores and walking through the forest - seemingly happy with a partner. It becomes clear that a black cloud hovers over the musician throughout the video, trapping them with triggers from the darker parts of the connection. Stunning aerial shots of Ireland's natural scenery and beaches contribute to the atmospheric mood throughout.
Having cultivated her art playing the local scene over the last number of years, BECAH has in that time secured support slots for renowned acts including that of Aslan, The Four of Us, and Brian Kennedy, most recently playing on the same bill as Brian Houston, Sam Wickens and Amy Montgomery. Previous singles 'Ghost' and 'Forget' paved the way for BECAH to get noticed in the Irish scene.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Jeff Buckley and MUSE, BECAH has found her own unique sound. Watch this space, her talent for using her own adversity to aid others is undeniable.
