Watch: Becky and the Birds – ‘When She Holds Me’

Becky and the Birds (the moniker of Swedish producer and songwriter Thea Gustafsson) returns with the release of an ethereal and intimate new track ‘When She Holds Me,’ a first look at her album arriving later this year.

Finding inspiration in the early work of Bon Iver, the self-produced track’s intimacy blossoms into lush harmonies and atmospheric soundscapes; the rich instrumentation references previous collaborators Dijon and Lapsley via soft-spoken harmonies and plucked strings. As described by Pitchfork, the sonic world she creates is propelled forward by “a singular, cosmopolitan pop mood that’s at once stylish and vulnerable.”

The arrival of ‘When She Holds Me’ also comes alongside the release of an accompanying music video, created by Tiffi Malmgren, Simon Beyene (Nothing Yet), and Morris Malmgren (Push Visuals).
