beabadoobee is the second face of Clash 116.
The outsider voice who forged her own path, beabadoobee went from dreaming about hanging with her indie rock icons to actually becoming one. Her debut album ‘Fake It Flowers’ is Bea in 360 – completely honest, completely affecting.
It’s the culmination of a journey she started almost by accident, one that took her from viral uploads to sold out arenas. Yet amid the rush she needed to step back – started in a whirlwind of hype, ‘Fake It Flowers’ ended with beabadoobee tapping back into her DIY roots, and realising what she had learned along the way.
As she tells Clash: “I needed time to think, to fix my mental health, and live within my album. Not a lot of artists have this much time to live in the world of their album.”
Also featured in this issue is Jessie Ware, Pa Salieu, Jarvis Cocker, Zsela, MadeInTYO, Rasharn Powell, saxophone colossus Nubya Garcia, alte crew DRB, Tkay Maidza, Olivia Dean, Jaz Karis, Joey Maxwell, and Metallica legend Lars Ulrich, amongst others. Other covers to follow this week.
