Freya Beers Returns with Exhilarating AA-Side Single ‘Fantasy and Galore’
Hailed as ‘a raw and thrilling new talent’, Freya Beer is a singer-songwriter from West London. Inspired by art and literature, alternative fashion and music.
Freya distils her disparate influences through a gothic soul and devil-may-care spirit that dares to dream in the darkness. Infusing rock songs of the distinctly gothic persuasion with painterly lyricism that has drawn on the works of literary trailblazers like Allen Ginsberg and Anna Sewell, or visionary artists such as JW Waterhouse to David Lynch; Freya Beer has earned her glowing comparisons to the likes of Nick Cave, PJ Harvey and Lana Del Rey.
Sparking a wave of attention from the get-go with her self-released first single “Bike Boy” in 2018 and its immediate follow-up “Six Months”, her debut outings quickly earned her a BBC Introducing Live Lounge Session, plus support from media tastemakers like BBC Radio 6 Music and Louder Than War.
Launching her own label Sisterhood Records in 2019, Freya has continued to impress ever since with singles like “Dear Sweet Rosie”, “Arms Open Wide”, “Siren” and “The Calm Before The Storm”, inspiring further media plaudits, plus collaborations with renowned musicians such as Andy Hargreaves (I Am Kloot) and Pete Hobbs (The Boy Least Likely To).
In 2021, Freya released her sensational debut album ‘Beast’. Recorded in London and Manchester, the 11 track album received unanimous fanfare and included previously unreleased tracks such as “All their Worth”, “Pure” and the mesmerising “To The Heavens”; a track that proved to be a crowd favourite on the rapturously received 12-date UK tour that followed its release.
Releasing just two new tracks since then, the pulsating goth-disco of “Love Child” and the Tom Saint duet of “Honeymoon Eyes”, Freya is now preparing to hit the road again in 2023. Plotting a limited stretch of shows in April and May in support of her “Fantasy” // “Galore” AA-side single, catch Freya at these upcoming fixtures below. Stand by for more summer Festival dates very soon.
