L.A. singer-songwriter drops hazy piece of alt-indie produced by Tennis.
Maui-born, L.A.-based singer-songwriter Beauty Queen has spent the last few years cementing herself as queen of off-kilter lo-fi indie, influenced by her chill childhood spent in Hawaii.
On her new single “Sweet Memory,” we’re reminded of the scale of her talent in this genre. Produced by the husband-and-wife duo Tennis, it’s a track that’s rich in nostalgia, mirrored in the hazy music video accompanying its release.
“I wrote the first line of ‘Sweet Memory’ during one of my 2.2-mile walking commutes from the ramen restaurant I worked at, to the eight bedroom house I lived in during my time in San Francisco,” Beauty Queen shared. “I couldn’t take the bus because I get motion sickness…so needless to say I got a lot of exercise when I lived there. Walking at night was so peaceful, yet, I did find there to be moments when someone would be striding towards me and I’d wonder…who is this person? Why are they walking? To where? From where? I liked living in a walking city because I got to see a lot of people in their day to day.”
