Bea Kristi is a London-based artist who picked up guitar-playing only two years ago. She’s part of a new wave of songwriters, the first post-2000 generation to make music, and that also includes teen sensations like Ambar Lucid from the US and lesser-known but equally talented musicians like Sara King and Avalon Lurks. As Beabadoobee, she’s released a handful of EPs – that last one in April this year. Loveworm is out on Dirty Hit and features a full band for the first time. The bigger setting hasn’t ruined the quality of the tunage, “Angel” rather sounds like Snail Mail at their best. She definitely has more in common with an American songwriting tradition, and it’s not difficult to hear the anguish of Red House Painters in some of the quieter songs like “1999”.
