Song of the Day: Cosmic Heart – Becky Bowe

The title track of her latest album, released earlier this month, UK singer-songwriter BECKY BOWE‘s ethereal love song, ‘Cosmic Heart’, radiates pure emotion. The single carries light tinges of jazz as smooth trumpet is brought in to resonate with the songstresses’ voice.

Based on the man who would eventually become her fiance, the single showcases a young woman’s tenacity in the knowledge that she had found her soulmate. Ending on a strong note with a choir entering at full strength, a choral element is brought forward, reinforcing the celestial soundscapes.

Speaking of the single, Becky Bowe shares further insight: “This song is really personal to me. I wrote it when I was 18 years old when I first started going out with my now fiancé. I was so used to writing the stereotypical break up song which always worked a treat however this time round I was feeling feelings that I didn’t know how to put on paper. I then started writing a song about him and about how amazing he is as a person and that’s where the song came to life. This song is just about an out of this world love that you find or have with someone.”

Produced and engineered by Aidan Thompson who, as part of Max Restaino’s band, played as the supporting act for Rebecca Ferguson, UB40 and Tears for Fears, ‘Cosmic Heart’ follows Becky’s previous single, ’That’s How Love Works’, which reached Number 9 in the UK iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts.

Song of the Day: Getting Older – Becky Bowe

Opening with a soothing introduction, BECKY BOWE‘s single, ‘Getting Older’, quickly picks up rhythms as her vocals strengthen with passion.The minimalist piece allows the listener the chance to breathe and release any tensions held against friends or loved ones.

Speaking of the single, Becky says: ‘Getting Older is about the point in your life where you are so focused on what you want to do but you lose focus in your social life. It’s a song describing that journey of growing up and how it feels really bizarre and that everything sometimes becomes an excuse but eventually you get the hang of it. You might lose touch with people on the way but then become close again. It’s about not allowing yourself to get worked up about it. It’s just the process of growing up’

You may recognise Becky Bowe as one of the Leeds Contemporary Singers who won BBC’s Pitch Battle in 2017 and sang alongside the likes of Will Young and Kelis.

Becky Bowe Share Video For Single ‘Don’t Darken My Door’

UK singer-songwriter BECKY BOWE has shared the colourful music video for ‘Don’t Darken My Door’ via Two Bridge Recordings.

Opening with bright shades of blue and silver, the music video for ‘Don’t Darken My Door’ provides a stark contrast to the sombre lyrics. Featuring the organic guitar chords and Becky’s warm, controlled vocals segueing into the mix laden with emotion and soul, the music video maintains a perfect balance between heartbreak and conviction.

Speaking of the music video, Becky Bowe says: “My idea for the video was to have the balloons representing thoughts and feelings about this said relationship and for me to release them by cutting them loose, letting them go and popping them so by the end I become free from the cloud over my head. I wanted to keep in with the light blue theme as I think it really compliments the chilled vibe of the song. The video would have never been what it was without the help of Declan Creffield who was the director, Milly Hewitt as set designer and Dana Cole for make up.”
