On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, the new EP from Bexx, SUCKER, is a collection of cathartic anti-love songs about being an idiot when it comes to dating, with big feelings and humour.
With her eclectic and euphoric sound, bexx is known for unserious heartbreak pop which gives her listeners the soundtrack they need to navigate life’s hurdles. Covering subjects such as queer dating, body image, mental health, and her favourite romcoms, bexx uses her songwriting to carve out space for fans to feel accepted and hopeful even in their lowest moments.
bexx has headlined Nottinghamshire Pride and supported the likes of Fickle Friends and Deco on tour, as well as being featured in the likes of Wonderland, Earmilk, and Rolling Stone. bexx in 2021-22 was about experimenting and finding her style, and now, in 2023, she is fully cooked and ready for world domination.
Her debut EP, SUCKER, is a collection of songs about bexx being an idiot when it comes to dating. Described as cathartic anti-love songs for people with big feelings, with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and an overall lighthearted approach, there is one thing that remains consistent with each track, and that is the humour.
Her relatable stories cover everything from being desperate for an ex to text you, being grossed out by your own feelings, being furious at someone for not missing you and of course a friends with benefits situation. Sonically, SUCKER is reminiscent of Carly Rae Jepsen, The 1975 and Fickle Friends, where colourful melodies, iridescent synths, fresh beats and catchy lyrics set the foundations for bexx’s bright and loveable sound.
I had so much FUN writing this EP, I was laughing the whole time, even when I was writing “haha, I’m dying alone”. It’s about times in my life that felt heavy and lonely, but writing these songs made me feel lighter. Almost all of these songs have a punchline. Pop music just doesn’t have to be that serious.
One fun fact about me is if I have a big scary feeling, I’m going to make a joke about it. A lot of the time it really does feel like love will never find me. I can cry about it or I can laugh and move forward. This one was written at a time when it was harder to laugh.
