2022’s follow up Beatopia is a fantastical yet deeply personal world that was formed in the imagination of a seven-year-old beabadoobee and has been carried with her ever since. Beatopia debuted in the Top 5 of the UK album chart and was accompanied by her biggest sold out UK tour to date, a huge sold out North America tour and her first tour of Asia. beabadoobee has toured globally, supporting the likes of Taylor Swift, The 1975, Halsey and Clairo, and has played some of the biggest festivals in the world, including Coachella, Glastonbury, Summer Sonic, Reading and Leeds and many more.
PRAISE FOR BEABADOOBEE
“Beatopiamarks beabadoobee as an artist able to set her own terms. Inventive, playful and, at times, truly magical, it might be an imaginary world, but it’s one that everyone should pay a visit.”
“Beatopiashows growth without risking losing the charm that has made Bea a firm favourite.”
ROLLING STONE ★★★★
“Indie-pop prodigy Bea Kristi keeps growing in front of our eyes.”
THE TIMES ★★★★
“Laus shows a real feeling for sweet-voiced guitar pop with fuzzy overtones. Talk sounds like a 1990s indie disco classic; Pictures of Us is delightfully wistful; and the whole thing rubs along with grungy charm.”
“The guitar hero trades teenage angst for self-acceptance, exploring a new sonic palette with confidence.”
STEREOGUM – ALBUM OF THE WEEK
“Beatopia sounds like a promise. It sounds like the work of someone who will stick around, who will keep pushing and exploring.”
“Bea Kristi’s second album is simultaneously heavy and light, dense and playful, melodic and dissonant.”
