Beabadoobee - She Plays Bass


She Plays Bass

Part Of Space Cadet EP.


Beabadoobee has released her new EP Space Cadet via Dirty Hit.









Her third EP in the space of a year, Space Cadet follows last year’s Dirty Hit debut Patched Up and this spring’s Loveworm, and features the singles ‘She Plays Bass’ and ‘I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus’, as well as three new songs. Bea is currently touring across the US with fellow bedroom popstar Clairo and will appear on the recently announced Dirty Hit UK label tour in November and December with No Rome and Oscar Lang, culminating in a night at London’s The Dome on December 20th.


Space Cadet is released following Bea’s first ever international headline show at Chelsea Music Hall in New York in September, and her third UK headline at The Grace in London, both of which sold out well in advance. Her recent single, ‘I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus’, a grungy ode to the lead singer of one of her biggest inspirations Pavement, elevated Bea to new heights, winning fans in the likes of the New Yorker and Dazed, and in Stephen Malkmus himself. ‘She Plays Bass’ premiered on Annie Mac’s show on BBC Radio 1, and went on to be her Tune of the Week.


Born in the Philippines and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as Beabadoobee in 2017. At just 19 years old, Beabadoobee has built her huge, dedicated Gen-Z fan base with her flawless output of confessional bedroom pop songs and DIY aesthetic. Her first track, ‘Coffee’ gathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days, through a fan-uploaded video. Since then, her songs have amassed millions of streams between her own self-released recordings and her first two EPs, Patched Up and Loveworm, and has received support from Vogue, Dazed, The Fader, i-D, Pigeons and Planes, Noisey, Nylon, Time Out, New Yorker and The Guardian, amongst others.
