With chest-swelling synths and cinematic choruses, Baby Queen gives us an IMAX experience of what it feels to be infatuated with someone in her latest single “Dover Beach.” The London-based artist captures the highs of falling for someone, but also the annoying way it can dominate all of our thoughts and even view. Check it out: 

Speaking of the track, she shared: “In school I was obsessed with this poem called ‘Dover Beach’ by Matthew Arnold and I always wanted to visit the Dover cliffs, so I went there alone on a writing trip in October last year. I actually wrote the melody and lyrics of this song while I was sitting on the beach. It’s about being infatuated with somebody and seeing them everywhere you look. I was kind of pissed that I went to look at the beach, all I could think about was this person, hence the lyric ‘you stole the view of Dover Beach.’ It’s another internal struggle with my own insecurities and a sort of acceptance of the fact that I can’t escape my daydreams of this person, even if I go to a different place.”

Baby Queen will be playing her debut headline show at Omeara on November 9th. Tickets will go on sale from 9am this Friday.
