Australian artist BEKS has unleashed this video for her captivating alt-pop track The Thing About Us, and it’s a must-watch.
The single is a new avenue for the Sydney songwriter, as she explores electrifying new pop sounds visualised by vibrant colours and scenes of escapism in the video detailing the blurred lines between a close friendship and love. Co-written with Cam Nacson and Xira, the track is one close to Beks’ heart, as she describes “This song encapsulates the feeling of being in love and then out of love with your best friend. Your best friend that you party and wake up hungover with and then realise that you’ve crossed a line of no return, blurred the boundaries and you’re desperate to find a way back. The thing about us is there was never an ‘us’ only ever ‘you and I’”.
Having already pricked the ears of the Australian music scene being feature on Triple J and FBI, BEKS is now making international waves after being announced as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition being judged by the like of Coldplay and Dualipa.
We look forward to sitting back and watching the career trajectory of this talented emerging artist!
