Beabadoobee - Space Cadet EP
Published: 11:44 am, October 17, 2019Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

The last few months of any calendar year are vital for a new act. Movers and shakers are plotting their year ahead early, positioning themselves to get those all-important new band list rankings and critics’ poll votes. EPs arrive, singles drop, showcase live shows go off with a bang. It’s a magical time. And yet sometimes, even the mechanics of the music industry can’t take away from something properly magical. 

For a while now, its been obvious that Beabadoobee is somewhat of ‘a talent’ - early online noise and ridiculous streaming numbers before even signing a deal showed an underlying sense of something special going on - but with her ‘Space Cadet’ EP, Dirty Hit’s latest prodigy is showing she’s far more than mere potential. 

From the word go, this is a fuller, more focused take on the template - scuzzy guitars and slacker pop perfection. Lead single ‘She Plays Bass’ in particular feels like a real step up - half dreamy haze, half 90s indie masterclass. If the rise continues, expect Bea to smash through the stratosphere.
