With sonic touchstones from Rex Orange County to Troye Sivan to The 1975, 21 year old beaux’s self-taught, super catchy pop pairs indie sensibilities with intimate storytelling. Earlier this year he shared his second EP, a love letter to the moments spent outside which featured the irresistibly catchy single ‘what’s the point?’ and more ambient ‘by the lake’. Written and largely inspired by the time spent in lockdown last summer, a love letter to the moments spent outside is exactly that: a captivating body of work inspired by finding peace in nature and time spent with loved ones. With his debut release, 2020’s I Don’t Want To Make It Alone, I Want To Make It With You, beaux packaged feelings of uncertainty, loss and fear of failure into smart, glittering pop.
Creating has always been in beaux’s blood; whether teaching himself visual effects at age 11, or posting videos on Vine at age 14 and sharing covers on YouTube - gaining him a huge online following as a result of their success - his savviness is no different when it comes to making music. So determined to pursue his burgeoning musical career, beaux finished up his GCSEs and A-Levels several years early and taught himself how to produce in Logic using online tutorials. He signed to Dirty Hit (beabadoobee, Rina Sawayama, Wolf Alice) after a chance DM to the label after seeing The 1975’s 2019 Reading Festival headline show, and is currently busy working away on more music in his home studio setup.
