BEA – “Filthy Believer”

BEA had one of the most hauntingly beautiful singles of 2014. She’s mysteriously real – and that’s what we love most about her. She makes sweet pop music with an unconventionally odd aesthetic that works almost too well. She’s back with a new single titled “Filthy Believer” and some pink eye candy to accompany it.  Her last music video, “We’re Like the Hard Born,” was filmed using a selfie stick. But results were refreshing despite our current generation’s obsession with the “selfie.” She told the Opening Ceremony blog:

“The selfie stick was a great tool for shooting myself whilst capturing the observance of myself, and simultaneously a commercial product that symbolizes social change. Visually, I found this very interesting to apply to a song that is pretty much about detachment.”

This track is soft in nature (an accomplishment of all other BEA tracks) and peaks with layered trumpet synths at the chorus -adding a bitter, jazzy feel. Could this video be another exploration of the self? If this isn’t what’s next in pop music, we want absolutely nothing to do with it. Enjoy.
