Beck Pete’s new single ‘BITE DOWN’, out today, speaks to the extremism of human nature that Beck has herself oscillated between before embracing the duality that has seeped into her core as an artist. The honesty of the end of the hook that says “maybe I could drift between a little bit of sane and crazy, been both lately, changes daily” is sure to hit home for most of us, whether we like it or not! Not to mention that this message is delivered with a dangerously catchy melody that will be stuck in your head for days, or possibly even weeks.
The prolific singer/songwriter can’t seem to resist creating music that is hooky and memorable. Not only does Beck Pete love pop music, she also understands that sometimes the truth is hard to stomach, and easier to consume when it feels good. She’s found a home somewhere to the left between alternative and pop genres, in an entirely oversaturated space, and still somehow has created a sound that is so uniquely warm, crisp, and experimental in a refreshingly palatable way, and dare we say it – cool.
“I just hope to tell stories in a way that impacts people. ‘Genre’ will wax and wane with what serves that story best, but one thing will stay consistent – I want to create a safe space to feel. Please don’t confuse this with me always making you comfortable or not surprising you. I hope to remind you that feeling is not just a positive thing, but also an inherent part of truly being alive. I hope to make you feel that, specifically — alive,” she proclaims.
