Freya Beer

West Londoner Freya Beer has released a new single ‘Siren’ to coincide with her rescheduled tour dates.

Currently residing on the south coast, Beer’s latest addition to her canon, ‘Siren’ takes its title from the J.W. Waterhouse masterpiece The Siren. It sees Beer unearth new secrets in the channels of renaissance art and mythology, while re-appropriating the feathered flare of 70s era glam in her own shadow. She elaborates:

“Ever since I began writing I’ve always turned to art for a starting point on my songwriting journey. I’ve found I work best visually, hence why I like to research into a lot of art/films/photography to improve my skills. Sonically, the guitars in particular were inspired by Roxy Music’s album For Your Pleasure.”

Initially written and recorded in Manchester back in 2019, ‘Siren’ has been given a fresh overhaul with the track re-recorded, mixed and mastered with Pete Hobbs (from The Boy Least Likely To). Her vocals and guitar hooks were made at home, while live drummer Owain Hanford added the percussion from his base in Hereford.
