Becky and the Birds (Thea Gustafsson) is an R&B/Soul singer-producer out of Örebro, Sweden. Not too long ago, she visualized her entire debut EP with a captivating film.

Becky and the Birds – EP video

“An emotive and captivating work of art, the video translates each track on the EP into a moving visual interpretation. It follows six moments in six women’s lives. Flowing seamlessly through intimate portraits of love, melancholy and surreal hedonism, the video is a hugely perceptive study of emotion, character, and relationships.”

The Geej Ower-directed film begins with “Becky” playing, while a cat walks on a pink carpet with floral designs. Clothes, a laptop, and other items are littered on the carpet.
