Fake It Flowers, Bea’s debut album, was released in late 2020. It was quickly followed by 2021’s Our Extended Play, an EP produced in association with The 1975 that portrayed her inability to mature, propensity to seek approval from others, and obsession with destructive vices. She told us at the time, “There’s a learning curve and self-growth there,” before pointing out that its more experimental sounds served as a sort of transitional point between albums one and two. Her second record is the result of her continuing artistic and personal development throughout this time. I am hooked, I am obsessed.

Simply said, I just wanted to have a ton of fun with my band, my fans. And making a video where everyone was involved.
