According to a press release, the single “unpacks Bea’s personal relationships with the people in her life, and how she depends on human contact to get to sleep” as she sings: “You’re just a warm body to hold/ At night when I’m feeling all alone”.
“’10:36′ was written after [2020 debut album] ‘Fake It Flowers’ and just before [2021 EP] ‘Our Extended Play’, and I had envisioned it to be on that EP, but I was just sitting on that riff for ages and then I properly made a demo during lockdown. It was called ’10:36′ because that was the time I finished writing it,” she explained. “It’s basically about how I have this weird dependency on human contact to sleep.”
‘Beatopia’ is out on July 15 and can be pre-ordered here. Her second studio effort “traverses fuzzy rock, classic singer-songwriter, psychedelia, midwest emo and outright pop” as the musician remains “undeniably herself throughout”.
To celebrate the album’s release the singer-songwriter is set to perform a series of acoustic in-store shows. You can view the full dates below.
