Breaking into summer with a thunderous new single FREYA BEER is back with new single: The Calm Before The Storm.
Directly following on from The Siren, this is the inevitable destiny. A swirling maelstrom of feedback-fried guitars and ground-splitting percussion, the South Coast singer stands amidst it all with a towering vocal performance that hooks and haunts with perilous intent.
Said to draw its inspiration from “the association of feminine energy and the phases of the moon”, Freya’s enthralling new release also offers cultish reference to one of her own breakthrough moments. As Freya says: “The song embodies the essence of my earlier single Dear Sweet Rosie, but it’s more like Rosie’s older, more mature sister… I wanted it to be a ceremonial ‘esque’ experience.”
To coincide with the album release, Freya has a major UK tour planned for November this year. Shows include venues in London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham, and Glasgow, as well as a hometown show at Southampton’s 1865. She will perform at The Lantern in Halifax on 19th November, Headrow House in Leeds on 20th November and the Old School House in Barnsley on 27th November.
