Becky and the Birds is the project of singer-songwriter Thea Gustafsson which was raised in Örebro, a small city in the middle of Sweden. Her musician father – proficient in accordian, piano and flute –immersed her in music from infancy, playing jazz and soul records at home.
One year after self-titled 10” and 2020’s single “Wondering”, she signed to 4AD and announced the release of a new EP. Trasslig is out on June 12th. “Paris” is the first excerpt. It is accompanied by visuals created by Thea Gustafsson. She explains, “I wrote this song in a hotel room in the centre of Paris. I was there to have a good time and to free my thoughts for a minute but couldn’t stop thinking about one special person back home.
This song is about those feelings, when you’re trying hard to not think about someone or something, and you think that the distance between you will help that. But then you realise that distance does in fact make the heart grow fonder.”
