Becky and the Birds follows her well-received debut single ‘Holding On’ with a new single ‘Concept Store’.
Becky and the Birds is the alias of Thea Gustafsson, a 21-year-old Swedish singer from Örebro who writes, produces and sings all her music.
Though not in the same soprano range as Minnie Riperton, Becky’s light, breathless vocal style is reminiscent of the legendary singer as it sensually caresses your ears on top a R&B flavoured production. There’s an enticing retro vibe to the single that eases out with the sweet sound of birdsong.
Regarding the unusually titled single Becky and the Birds explains,
“‘Concept Store’ is about when you find yourself obsessing over what the person you love is thinking. I guess you could say that it’s about some kind of paranoia, you’re stuck with the thought and the feeling that he or she is about to leave, and soon you’ll start over-analyzing shit.”
‘Concept Store’ is the second track to be taken from Becky and the Birds’ forthcoming debut EP, which will be released later this spring.
