Belfast’s newest contemporary pop sensation Becky McNeice has just released her latest single ‘In My Head’, and it’s blends pop and drum & bass perfectly. Becky’s latest single is an emotive trip through two-stepping rhythms and the tales of life as an adolescent in Belfast.
Existing within the cross-section between alternative pop and mainstream sensibility, Becky McNeice represents the new wave of Ireland. Distinctive, heartfelt and with an ear for glitter-littered lyricism, she is uniting the worlds of Pink Pantheress/Biig Piig-styled breakbeat-pop with her own characteristic, hyper-pop friendly addictiveness, ear marking her as one of the most exciting artists to emerge from Ireland in recent years.
Breaking onto the scene with single Long Days – which garnered support from Spotify editorial playlists New Music Friday UK and New Pop UK, in addition to also being playlisted on Vogue and H&M and gathered nearly 60,000 plays – the emerging star has recently been linking up with Irish producers Spireview and Eulogy, together quietly crafting tears-in-your-eyes bedroom pop, alternative R&B and emotive 2-step & drum & bass. Becky’s ability to transform the simplest phrase into a moment of complete inward contemplation and self-thought is not only a beautifully intimate quality, but its honest and genuine delivery ensures that it is entirely believable. Internet-kid sonics delivered through a contemporary lens.
“Maybe I’m changing right through, many mistakes to undo, I know I’ll find it within myself, but right now I need some help, as long as it’s no one else, don’t need to be with you less, I just can’t stay in my head” – Becky McNeice.
Becky’s latest single In My Head provides a kaleidoscopic look into Becky’s art as of right now, pulling inspiration from various corners of Belfast’s vibrant music scene, and intertwining tales of raw and honest emotion from the perspective of a youth in Northern Ireland. This is not to be slept on.
