BEA AND HER BUSINESS SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘ME AGAINST MY HEAD’.
HEADLINES LONDON’S LAFAYETTE ON APRIL 9TH EUROPEAN TOUR ALSO JUST ANNOUNCED
19-year-old Bea and Her Business is quickly becoming one of the great new hopes of the UK pop scene. Led by the single ‘Born To Be Alive’, her debut EP ‘Introverted Extrovert’ has already exceeded 42 million streams and resulted in her first airplay at Radio 1. Now Bea builds upon her flying momentum by sharing the new single ‘Me Against My Head’. Teasers for the track has already ignited anticipation, with 2.5 million views on TikTok alone and over 10,000 pre-saves.
A beautifully stripped back piano ballad, ‘Me Against My Head’ finds Bea opening up her inner most insecurities for the world to see. The exquisite, expressive tone of her vocal dares to share those vulnerabilities which so many people face: from body confidence issues to questions of self-doubt in social settings. And yet in spite of its challenging subject matter, it’s a song that possesses the honesty to inspire others. You might be struggling with such thoughts, but it’s entirely normal and natural to feel that way.
Bea says, “I am so excited to share my new single ‘Me Against My Head’ with you all. It paints the brutal relationship that I have had with myself and my body over my teenage years and I think in writing the song, it has allowed me to come to terms with it all a little bit more. Please be warned, it might rip your heart from your chest but it’s worth it, I promise. I can’t wait to hear what you all think!
Bea wrote ‘Me Against My Head’ with the track’s producer, the Grammy and Ivor Novello winner Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Sam Smith).
‘Me Against My Head’ emerges as Bea prepares to play just her second headline show at London’s Lafayette on April 9th after selling out her debut headline gig at Omeara late last year, while her first European tour has also just been announced. Her first public performance was on one of the biggest stages imaginable: in front of 100,000 people at a festival in Oslo. That moment also coincided with her first international breakthrough as she landed a Top 50 hit in the Nordics.
Bea started writing songs in childhood. Her ability to capture honest observations and a little caustic humour from universal coming-of-age experiences reflects her early admiration of Lily Allen, while Lana Del Rey and Olivia Rodrigo are two of her current inspirations. But her influences go beyond personal experiences with a particular interest in the art of poetry, most significantly from Leonard Cohen and Kate Bingham. Bea’s first social media following came with her expressive cover versions, but her own songs have forged a much deeper connection with fans.
