We loved Beks’ new single ‘The Thing About Us’ the moment we heard it, so we’re thrilled that she chose us to premiere it!
There’s a real timelessness to this single; it’s cleverly written, intricate, desperately polished and oh so catchy.
It wouldn’t be out of place on bodies of work by some of international pop’s biggest names (we could seriously imagine Carly Rae Jepsen snaffling it up).
But it’s penned right here in Australia.
“I wrote this with my friends Cam Nacson (Sad Boii) and Tamika Nacson (Xira) during a songwriting session for my mixtape in October 2020,” Beks explains.
“This song encapsulates the feeling of being in love and then out of love with your best friend. Your best friend that you party and wake up hungover with and then realise that you’ve crossed a line of no return, blurred the boundaries and you’re desperate to find a way back.
“The thing about us is there was never an ‘us’ only ever ‘you and I'”.
Tantalisingly, there’s more where this came from, with confirmation that ‘The Thing About Us’ will feature on a new mixtape Beks is planning to drop in 2021.
But enough of us… please enjoy as, ahead of its release tomorrow, we premiere the rather fabulous ‘The Thing About Us’.
