Traversing her own way of luxe indie-pop, Bec Sandridge today unveils her 5 track EP ‘Lost Dog’. It features the anthemic Cost Of Love, and her current synth-driven single The Jetty featuring Andy Bull. Presenting an electric sonic union of songwriters and musicians, Bec worked with some of her closest friends on the new EP.
â€œIâ€™m incredibly thrilled with how these songs have turned out and I have been fortunate enough to work with a lot of my favourite people on these songs, people that have true insight into my sonic brain. Dave Jenkins Jr, Lucy Taylor, Andy Bull, Geoff Swan, Japanese Wallpaper, Rosie Fitzgerald, Dorny Mayes, Tony Buchen – such a dream team!â€ – Bec Sandridge
The new EP showcases Sandridgeâ€™s interest in gritty yet slick production palettes and demonstrates her overall versatility as a songwriter. Her cutting pop sensibilities coupled with expansive vocals, consume the listener wholeheartedly. New track Easy To Go Bad serves a glimpse into the new creative space Sandridge is in: the song is intimate, dark and compelling.
â€œThis oneâ€™s about the trick of nostalgia. Itâ€™s far too easy to go back to something that feels like homeâ€¦ Nonetheless, this is potentially my favourite on the EP. For me, it embodies that disgusting feeling of being trapped in a stuffy-car, all day, with a stomach ache.â€ – Bec Sandridge
Effortlessly switching from indie guitar pop to experimental electro landscapes, her new EP was mastered by Lachlan Carrick (Doja Cat, Gotye, Gretta Ray).
â€œI was a bit of a lost dog, myself and I also lost my dog. This EP is a snapshot of that time. The goal was to take time and write my best songs to dateâ€¦ On my debut record, I felt that I hadn’t gone as far as I could in terms of angularity and the whole gloss-pop thing. I wanted to really sit in that pocket… To me, this lot of songs feels like driving into a sunset, no sunglasses, with an ache in the pit of your stomach (potentially a hangover): itâ€™s sickeningly beautiful, temporarily blinding and also, signifying the end of a big olâ€™ chapter.” – Bec Sandridge
In 2019, Bec Sandridge released her debut album â€˜TRY + SAVE MEâ€™ spawning the singles Animal, Iâ€™ll Never Want A BF, Eyes Wide and Stranger which scored second place in the International Songwriting Competition Unsigned Category judged by Tom Waits, Dua Lipa and Chris Martin. Last year, Sandridge composed the soundtrack for theatre production â€˜Ishmaelâ€™ which premiered at Brisbane Festival at QPAC and opens next month at the Sydney Opera House.
Bec has previously supported Naked and Famous, Yungblud, The Rubens, Cub Sport, Montaigne, plus performed at various festivals (Falls Festival, Groovinâ€™ The Moo, The Plot, Festival of The Sun). She has just recently wrapped up a successful UK and Europe in September.
