Following the success of her single The Thing About Us (released in December, 2020) which was picked up by Home and Away and Channel 7 for a national TV and radio adv campaign, continuing rotation on Coles-Nova Radio and finalist in The International Songwriting Competition 2021, Beks announces the release of her new discoesque dance floor banger Devoted.
The single was written by Beks (Rebecca Callander) and Aaron Lee at his studio on the NSW Central Coast. Produced and mixed by Aaron Lee, the song’s 80s style guitar riff and four to the floor beat echoes a disco groove reminiscent of an early Daft Punk. The song is entitled Devoted however the hook of the single is I’m Not Devoted To You.
To celebrate the release, Beks has created a blockbuster music video entitled Devoted with Brisbane director Beau Bressington, which references iconic love films with a twist. Recreating, in detail, pivotal scenes from the films such as Ghost, The Notebook, Love Actually, Titanic, Spider Man 2 and Dirty Dancing, Beks rewrites and acts out bitter alternative endings. The music video opens with Beks working at the historically restored cinema, The Elizabeth, in Brisbane where a couple enters. Beks’ newly broken heart takes her away into a daydream to these classic love films, as she plays out, frame by frame, these revised jilted endings. Amongst these scenes are twenty dancers, alongside Beks, all styled in up-cycled, Brisbane fashion designer, Kimbra Lou clothing, performing choreography designed by Beks and shot at the iconic Fortitude Valley Music Hall.
In addition to an awesome single Beks has compiled a special playlist for Hi Fi Way titled “Devoted To Pop”
