+ CONFIRMS NEW SINGLE:
“WRITE HER OFF”
COMING THIS NOVEMBER
Goth-pop priestess – FREYA BEER – is pleased to announce a brand new single “Write Her Off”, which will arrive ahead of a string of UK live dates this November/December.
A seductive, scathing alt-pop clash, it finds Freya Beer continuing her stellar trajectory from the heart of darkness. Arriving this November, the new single was recorded in London with Paul Burnley at The Social and Jack O’Hea at FOLD Studios. The track also sees Freya working with long-time collaborators Dave Fidler and Ray Mitchell who undertook mixing duties at The Fuse in Manchester.
Paying homage to the feelings of emptiness that come along with an unrequited attraction, Freya explains of the story behind the new release
“”Write Her Off” is a song about going after your crush and the feeling of rejection because they don’t feel any connection to you. You come to the realisation you should dismiss the love — almost as though you have to “write them off” to move on”.
Hailed as a “raw and thrilling talent”, Freya Beer is a singer-songwriter from West London. Inspired by art, literature, alternative fashion and music, Freya distils her disparate influences through a gothic soul and devil-may-care spirit that dares to dream in the darkness.
Having sparked a wave of attention from the get-go with her self-released debut single “Bike Boy”’ and follow-up “Six Months” in 2018, Freya earned a BBC Introducing Live Lounge Session and a feature on Tom Robinson’s BBC Radio 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 2020, she released the single “Dear Sweet Rosie” with the track drumming up further support from BBC 6 Music as well as a live session on Marc Riley’s show (which was then highlighted as one of his “Best of the Year” that December). Renowned music critic John Robb also hailed her as ‘New Artist of the Day’ on his Louder Than War site and predicted a Mercury Prize in years to come.
Revealing her many shades with a series of exquisite lockdown cover versions, Freya bookended 2020 with the acclaimed single “Arms Open Wide”, which was placed in PRS for Music’s Top 20 songs of the year. Discovering new audiences and in-turn more about herself as an artist, Freya released her debut album ‘Beast’ in October 2021 to unanimous fanfare.
In Spring this year Freya shared a brand new AA-side single “Fantasy” // “Galore”, and she has continued to build up her loyal live following with headline shows in London, a key slot at Latitude Festival, a solo support run with Honeyblood and more under her belt across 2023. She also made her US live debut with a full-band show in New York City earlier this year.
Having attracted praise from a range of musical tastemakers across her career to-date, Freya recently launched her own radio show ‘Freya’s Gothic Disco’ on Islington Radio. She was also featured in Time Out’s special Goth-themed issue for Halloween 2023.
With “Write Her Off” set to land this November, Freya will be playing headline shows in Winchester, Manchester and London across the Winter. Find full dates and details below.
