Becky & The Birds shares debut single ‘Holding On’

Swedish singer and producer Becky & The Birds has shared her debut single, ‘Holding On‘.

The new imaginative track, which was premiered over at Clash, is a genre-bending mixture of lush electronics, with nods to trip-hop and ‘90s R&B alongside beautiful samples plucked from nature. Listen to the new cut below.

Although the 21-year-old, real name Thea Gustafsson, has clocked up millions of streams online she explains that her relentless sessions with all-male producers began to grate on her.

“I always had this voice inside me—society’s voice—that was like ‘No, you can’t, ‘cos you’re a girl, that’s for the boys’” she said. “I was like, I can’t do this any more—having all these dudes mansplaining, sitting with their spread legs,” Thea says. “I was just so frustrated. When you have a really clear vision yourself, it’s difficult to compromise.”
