Queensland independent songstress and indie-pop creative, Beks today services radio with The Thing About Us, taken from her forthcoming debut EP.
Inspired by a new era of music and songwriting, The Thing About Us showcases Beks’ innate ability to craft catchy pop hooks.
“I wrote this with my friends Cam Nacson (Sad Boii) and Tamika Nacson (Xira) during a songwriting session in October 2020. This song encapsulates the feeling of being in love and then out of love with your best friend. Your best friend that you party and wake up hungover with and then realise that you’ve crossed a line of no return, blurred the boundaries and you’re desperate to find a way back. The thing about us is there was never an ‘us’ only ever ‘you and I’
In the first week of release The Thing About Us charted #1 on Triple J Unearthed Dance Charts and #3 on the Electronic Charts.
Most recently the song was picked up by Channel 7 and featured on a national TV and radio campaign for Home and Away.
The song was also a finalist in the 20221 International Songwriting Competition.
Since September 2020, Beks has been working daily with songwriters and producers in studios throughout Australia and in the UK via Zoom on her forthcoming debut EP. The EP features co-writes and production by Taka Perry, Jim Eliot (Ladyhawke, EAST), Xira, Cam Nacson, Tasker, Lucy Neville, Kim Moyes (The Presets), Airports, Clara Fable and more.
