"Fake It Flowers" by Beabadoobee


download.jpeg

  Beabadoobee’s full length studio debut “Fake It Flowers” blends shoe gaze, grunge, and indie pop for an intensely nostalgic album that’s reminiscent of the late 90s, going into the early 2000s. The Filipino born British singer-songwriter draws on 90s indie alt and slacker rock for inspiration, leading her to explore indie pop confessionals as well as rock anthems on this album. Several songs on the album bring the same brand of angst and catchyness as indie and pop songs of the early 2000s, including “Yoshimi, Forest, Magdalene,” “Sorry” and “Charlie Brown.” But the strong suit of this album is how easily it transports listeners by creating these sound backdrops, not only to the 2000s but to vintage romantic backdrops such as on “How Was Your Day.” For indie nostalgia, this is the perfect album.
