Into that EP, she’s decanted her prior frustrations with the music business, as well as the darkness of her depressive period. The result; a genre-spanning blend of lush electronics, nods to trip-hop and ‘90s R&B, stitched together with soul-stirring spoken word vocal samples and noises plucked from nature.
Being completely in control of her sound comes at a price. “You go kind of insane when you're writing by yourself —you're stuck with all your thoughts, there’s no-one next to you saying, ‘This is good!’ It's kind of a fragile thing, but that's when it becomes magical.”
This quest to tell stories, and her will to express her own unique, genuine experiences, is the essence of Becky and the Birds.
