On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, new single, Bite Down, from Los Angeles based songwriter Beck Pete speaks to the extremism of human nature.
In a world where strength is encouraged, and expression of feeling has been painted as the opposite of strength, I’m over here arguing that one cannot exist without the other.-Beck Pete
Singer-songwriter Beck Pete is a woman who understands the complexity of extremes. Creating music to show all sides of the human experience, she seeks to remind her listeners that two seemingly opposing things can be true at once; something can be both beautiful and heartbreaking, morally questionable and incredible to live through, or masculine and also so purely feminine.
Sonically, Beck Pete captures this duality through a combination of soaring, soft, often sweet sounding background vocals and playful melodies with tangible rough textures and growling megaphone lead vocal doubles, for a cathartic and emotionally enveloping listen.
Having made a name for herself in Los Angeles, headlining and packing notable venues including The Hotel Cafe, The Echo, Moroccan Lounge and The Troubadour, she has shared the stage with artists including DYLAN, whom she opened for at her sold out Mercury Lounge show, and JP Saxe, whom she co-headlined the Troubadour with.
Her music has further found its way into many TV shows including The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina which allowed the songwriter to garner many new fans, and boosted her song “Gently Break It” to nearly 1.5 million streams on Spotify.
In the Summer and Fall of 2023, songs from Scared Of Everything were featured in the Apple TV Original Series Shelter and the film Singing In My Sleep.
Beck Pete’s new single, Bite Down, 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, 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.
Scared Of Everything
Part 1 of Beck Pete’s album Scared Of Everything, released in 2022, has already garnered attention across streaming services with several notable editorial Spotify playlist placements as well as acclaim from a variety of media outlets including MTVU, Wonderland, NOTION, and Medium all enamored with her passionate, gritty approach to vulnerability.
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.-Beck Pete
Beck Pete will continue to release singles for Part 2 of her album Scared Of Everything throughout the remainder of 2023, so buckle up and prepare yourself for a few seasons of feeling, dancing and crying.
