With it being a new year, we’re all about new talent and top of our list is alt-pop artist Beck Pete with her new single “Softie”. Gently ushering us into feel-good soundscape filled with twangy guitar melodies and subtle drums, the artist croons over the smooth production while introducing retro synths and contemporary pop. Taking her vocals to new heights over the chorus, the singer bursts through the single and instantly incapsulates those late summer moments driving across the country.

Speaking on the release, the artist said, “This song is about internalizing your own worth, and in this instance, taking a step back and letting others realize it too. I whisper sang this song over and over to myself in my room with wet cheeks and tired eyes until I finally was able to truly know mine, and if someone else is able to do the same, I’ve done my job.”

Marking a start of a new chapter with this single, the artist teases that she is ready to branch away from the depths of heartbreak and embrace a new start filled with self-discovery and vulnerability. Catching up with us virtually, the artist gets real on new music, the pandemic and staying positive.
