Beija Flo – Heads or Tails

Photo Credit: Graham Smillie

‘Heads or Tails’ is a 1 minute 35 second new wave tornado that packs in social commentary and performer Beija Flo’s dismay at the fate of her hometown, Harlow in Essex. A speedy, vivacious, experimental jam backed with samples of Beija’s mates chatting and kicking off. You actually feel like you’re spending a night in the town with them, your head firmly in your hands, only your experience is happily inside a hi-octane, hyperactive indie song. And just as a would-be second verse launches with Flo exclaiming “This is destroying us inside!”, the musicians drop their instruments and the song is done.

Thankfully Heads of Tails is only the first in a trio of singles to be released by Beija Flo. Recorded in Liverpool band SPQR’s Yellowbird Studios with producer friend and long-time collaborator Sam Baker, the trilogy will see us through to Spring 2022. If you like what you hear, the single, with limited signed and numbered art print, is available to purchase at https://iambeijaflo.bandcamp.com/ as well as an extensive range of poetry, merch, artwork and music.

You can also catch Beija Flo live this autumn/winter on tour and supporting Dexter… sorry Michael C Hall’s new wave band Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum as they tour the UK for the first time.

I like music. In my spare time sometimes I listen to it and then write about the music I've listened to.
