The incredible up and coming songstress, Freya Beer, has just released a dreamy new music video for her latest track, ‘Dear Sweet Rosie’.
Despite notable influences from the likes of Nick Cave, Cat Power, and PJ Harvey, Beer’s music retains a refreshing sense of individuality which is showcased throughout ‘Dear Sweet Rosie’ and the fantastic accompanying video. The director Paul Johnson manages to make every frame look like a Pre-Raphaelite painting with Beer appearing statuesque in a long pale dress on a bleak beach. Lyrically the song is inspired by Allen Ginsberg’s poem ‘An Asphodel’ and Anna Sewell’s classic novel Black Beauty, the latter of which is represented in the video with Beer seen beside a horse on the shore. Interestingly, the hard riffs and I Am Kloot’s Andy Hargreaves’ tenacious drumming perfectly compliment the romanticism of the video.
The release of ‘Dear Sweet Rosie’ showcases further striking material from Beer who has already received acclaim from BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Introducing.
