Beau

Beau appearing on Baby TV (NOT) tonight but on 2/26

LIVESTREAM RESCHEDULED BUT STILL HAPPENING! Spawned from the bohemian artist environs of Greenwich Village and the gypsys that remain, Heather Goldin and Emma Jenney’s first mutual encounter was a self-described opposites attract moment at their nonhierarchical arts-intensive public grade school in third grade which eventually led to them becoming complimentary songwriting partners and eventually an active musical concern known as Beau. Now, some years later, the latest single by this fully grown up duo called "Dance With Me" continues the dualistic dynamic with its high-gloss-yet-gritty-in-the-city sound.

It’s a dynamic that feels pretty right for two Joni Mitchell lovin' wild childs who ended up playing Paris Fashion Week (Paris the city, not Paris Hilton) when barely into their 20s and then signing to a French-Japanese fashion-label-cum-record-label. And it also feels pretty right that the song vibrates with the urgency and abandon and sense of pure joy you’d expect of two highly creative artists coming off from a five year recording hiatus (but not a songwriting hiatus) to work independently with a team of local collaborators. 

“Dance With Me” started with a piano line written in a dank NYC basement and came to fruition across multiple recording studios while preserving many elements of the original demo. It's a multilayered musical cake and let’s not forget the lyrics that portray dance as both carefree ecstatic communion and urgently needed escape from inner and outer demons, and the music video that opens on an image of the ladies smokin’ up on a treadmill. Now that's a health regimen we can get behind.

And here’s the kicker, you can watch a live show by Beau here in a few weeks on FRIDAY 2/26 in the comfort of your own homes while jogging on your NordicTrack and working your way through a pack of Marlboros or rolling up a big fattie or doing whatever you want we're not here to judge. Jump on over to Baby TV, a subsidiary of Baby’s All Right, to get your tix before the scalpers snap 'em all up and to read more about what Beau has in store for the future. O, sweet anticipation!

Seen live: Beau opening for Børns at Terminal 5

New York folk pop duo, Beau, is currently accompanying Børns on a fraction of his American tour, and we were able to catch their set at the sold out Terminal 5 show last week. The two young ladies, who released their debut album 'That Thing Reality' earlier this year, put together a magnetic performance, with lead singer Heather Goldman captivating the crowd with whimsical dancing and soulful vocals. The duo also opened for Miike Snow earlier this year, and will be playing several scattered dates during the summer. Check out the video of their break out single 'One Wing.' - Amanda McCall

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best mellow songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

   

NYC Folk duo Beau announces debut album, plays Baby's All Right on April 27th

We can't find much info on the internet about NYC based folk duo Beau, formed by two very young ladies named Heather Boo and Emma Rose. But we can find a lot of info about their label which is about to release their self-titled debut: it appears to be to be a (French) fashion brand on a mission to support the creative efforts of musicians - it also released Buscabulla's debut EP, recently NYC record of the month on this same blog. The involvement of fashion related companies in the record industry cannot be unwelcome, considering the scarcity of funds afflicting the latter. Preview single "One Wing" and this other song "Karma" are reminiscent of a folkier, sparser and less pretentious Lana Del Rey - we are curious to hear the rest of the record to form a more complete opinion. Beau will be performing live at Baby's All Right on April 27th with Buscabulla and Mothxr.
