Meet new Dirty Hit signing Beabadoobee and her hushed, gorgeous debut EP

The London-based bedroom pop singer is today’s Neu Pick.

Today, Dirty Hit have announced new signing Beabadoobee with the release of the London-based bedroom pop singer’s debut EP ‘Patched Up’.

Seven tracks of hushed, gorgeous folk, the tracks thrive on simplicity, and are described by the singer as “a collection of songs that patch up a history of teenage unhappiness in the lead up to turning 18 years old”.

Beabadoobee - aka Bea Kristi - was born in Manilla and raised in London, and her handful of self-released tracks up until this point have racked up millions and millions of Spotify plays.

It’s ‘Patched Up’, though, that sees her truly put her marker down. Clearly indebted to Elliott Smith, the tracks almost exclusively circle around soft strums of acoustic guitar, but when clinks of piano or luscious strings flood in to back her up, the songs become anthemic instead of purely introspective.

Beabadoobee is set to play her first headline show tonight (7th December) at St Pancras Old Church in London.
