BEA1991 Makes Sad And Sexy Pop, And She Just Released ‘v4’ Ahead Of Her Forthcoming Album


A singular voice in sad but seductive pop music, born and raised D.I.Y, Dutch multidisciplinary artist BEA1991 is one of the few that truly created her own atmosphere. Her vibrating essence and divinely silky-soft yet bewitching voice — undulating with devotion, an enchanting melody and captivating soulful vibe — don’t go unnoticed. She’s had the support of Blood Orange aka Devonté Hynes since 2014, both in performance and personal praise.

Stronger than ever, Bea released her new single ‘v4’ earlier this month. It had the effect of a very mild earthquake, a warm announcement for her forthcoming debut album — finally. And the wait has been well worth it.

Known for her solid and often self-produced (if not, conceptualised) visuals, she doesn’t miss a beat with her new electric black and white portrait cover. Zapping us in to her parallel universe, combining hypnotic vocal and uncanny aesthetic, we sit distantly (but desperately!) wait for any forthcoming moving image with as much anticipation as we have for the record. See our past faves below:

"It’s a big fuck you to the system, to the confines of language... I could go on and on, but that was really comforting — to realise I could use this as a statement."

"I wanted to talk about my sexuality in a way that is celebratory, but that also tells a different story. There are so many songs about being proud, I wanted to speak about what I was feeling."

“I don’t really think that reality is my thing. It’s just a little gauche for me.”
