Sometimes all you need is a moment of clarity; a split second when everything slips into place. For Becky & The Birds, it was taking ownership of her work while rejecting the pop-saturated sound of her native Sweden, resulting in a true-to-self, multifaceted project. Where pop tends to value visibility, Becky & The Birds favours obscurity. Her moniker of choice came about through writing her debut EP, an experience that dredged up some dark emotions, leaving her battling depression. Into that EP, she’s decanted her prior frustrations with the music business, as well as the darkness of her depressive period. The result; a genre-spanning blend of lush electronics, nods to trip-hop and ‘90s R&B, stitched together with soul-stirring spoken word vocal samples and noises plucked from nature.
