Up and coming artist Freya Beer has just released her brand new single, ‘Dear Sweet Rosie’. The song takes its title from Allen Ginsberg’s poem ‘An Asphodel’ and is also influenced by Anna Sewell’s classic novel Black Beauty. As demonstrated by Beer’s dazzling track ‘Six Months’ which was released at the start of the year, the young artist takes inspiration from poetry and prose to create beautiful lyrics accompanied by an edgy rock sound.
‘Dear Sweet Rosie’ first hits hard with a prodigious riff before Beer’s stunning vocals steal the limelight. As the song continues, heavy electric guitar, crashing symbols, and a single piano note form a solid backdrop to showcase Beer’s striking vocals. In its entirety, ‘Dear Sweet Rosie’ is a hard-edged indie rock hit oozing with swagger and infectious vigour.
Beer’s previous singles have been met with high praise and were featured on BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Music Introducing (Solent). It is therefore exciting to hear a brand-new track which further teases at what else we can expect from a refreshing and incredibly promising artist.
If you want to catch Freya Beer performing live, she will be supporting Burning House in Portsmouth on the 23rd of November. In December she will be opening for none other than the bard of Salford himself, John Cooper Clarke.
