AdvertisementHailed as ‘a raw and thrilling new talent’, Freya Beer is a singer-songwriter based in West London. Inspired by art and literature, alternative fashion and music, Freya distills her disparate influences through a gothic soul and devil-may-care spirit that dares to dream in the darkness.
Freya released her debut album Beast in October 2021 to exceptional reviews and great public acclaim.
Freya sparked a wave of attention from the get-go with her self-released debut single Bike Boy in 2018 and its follow-up Six Months. They earned Freya a BBC Introducing Live Lounge Session and a feature on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music show and so the roller coaster began.
With the wind in her sails, Freya launched her own label Sisterhood Records in 2019 as a vehicle to further her creativity. In February 2020 she released the single Dear Sweet Rosie, recorded in Manchester with accompaniment from I Am Kloot’s Andy Hargreaves on sonic drums. Drawing on literary influences like Allen Ginsberg’s An Asphodel and Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty, the track went on to receive incredible support from BBC 6 Music and many rave reviews. Marc Riley offered Freya a live session on his BBC 6 Music show (which was then highlighted as one of his Best of the Year in December), and has continued to champion her brilliance. Renowned music critic John Robb hailed her as ‘New Artist of the Day’ on his Louder Than War site and predicted a Mercury Prize in years to come.
In April 2022 Freya released the single Love Child. The track embodies a cinematic essence sonically and takes Freya’s ‘glam goth noir’ to the next musical level in her career.
Freya’s October 2022 single, Honeymoon Eyes, a duet with rising electro star Tom Saint, coincided with another successful UK tour, including headline slots at Manchester’s famous Night & Day Cafe, and culminating with a major London show as special guest to Republica.
Freya starts 2023 with a major show as part of Camden Rocks, and she will be back in the studio in mid-January 2023 recording her next single.
