Paper Girl Adée ain’t jivin’ in new Beat Funktion video

Written by 

Grab your popcorn and journey back to the 70’s with a retro inspired video from the Swedish soul funk masters - Beat Funktion.

The full meaning behind the track ‘Paper Girl’ comes to life as we see Adée question the image and effects of females image in the media. The in-demand Swedish singer has had a busy year. Having already released her debut album and toured the US this year, she now provides a perfect synergy of song and rap with Beat Funktions tight groove.

Directed by Johan Waltari, and filmed and shot in Uppsala, Sweden, the style of the 70’s film intro and outro credits are a fitting touch.

Paper Girl is taken from Beat Funktion's album - Green Man

  • Adée adds soul to Miss Right

    There’s simply no stopping Adée.

    In 2016 the Swedish singer from Kalmar toured the US, returned to Sweden to feature on Beat Funktions album - Green Man, and still found time to release one of the best albums of the year - Addicted (review coming soon).

    Now the singer re-works one of her favourite songs, Miss Right by Anderson .Paak and adds her soulful vocals, with production by David Ekströmer. The result is yet another excellent example of the versatility and competency of this young and exciting soul-hop singer.

  • No more waiting for the Green Man

    Fast forward just over a year from the release of Olympus (what was for me one of 2015’s best releases) Uppsala combo Beat Funktion deliver Green Man, their 6th LP in six years, and their first that could be considered a vocal LP.

    I already knew that the band could play, but when word of the vocal guests who would be appearing on the LP hit my ears I was initially intrigued. With each announcement of vocalists my intrigue turned into eager anticipation, and having listened to the LP for the last few weeks, that anticipation has turned in to deep appreciation.

    Simply put Beat Function have delivered an LP steeped in the heady brews of 70s Soul, Funk, Jazz and Fusion and it sounds like heaven.
