Bea Kristi (better known as Beabadoobee) is an emerging 19-year-old Filipino-British singer-songwriter based in London, who makes stripped back songs you can just about float away to. In December, Brummies will get the chance to immerse themselves in her fuzzy indie rock at a live performance at The Castle and Falcon.
Kristi, in true Gen-Z fashion, rose to fame through YouTube and online streaming services with her debut song, “Coffee”, being a surprise success in 2017. Now signed to Dirty Hit Records (Pale Waves, The 1975), she has toured with lo-fi royalty Clairo and been named by Guardian as One To Watch. If you’re a fan of Snail Mail‘s 90s-inspired indie rock, Beabadoobee is well worth checking out.
Beabadoobee, who is currently on tour in North America, will begin the UK leg of her tour in Norwich on November 27th, co-headlining with fellow lo-fi Dirty Hit signees No Rome (a fellow Filipino-British soft-indie musician) and Oscar Lang, a band who describe themselves as sounding like “if you rolled Mac DeMarco, John Lennon and the Wii shop channel music into a ball and put it inside Kevin Parker’s butthole.”
The tour will wrap up in London on December 20th.
