20:00 Beabadoobee (Philippines-UK)
Born in 2000 in the Philippines' Iloilo City, Bea Kristi and her family moved to London's Camden neighborhood when she was three. Growing up, she took years of violin lessons and listened to pinoy music as well as the '90s artists -- the Cranberries, Liz Phair, Natalie Imbruglia -- that were her mother's favorites. As a teen, she felt like an outsider. The only Filipino student at an all-girl Catholic school, she struggled with depression. She found a creative outlet for her angst at age 17, when her father bought her a secondhand guitar. Teaching herself to play with online tutorials and taking the performing name Beabadoobee from an old social media handle, she created a delicate, intimate style informed by Dawson's music as well as that of Alex G, Florist, and Karen O. Beabadoobee recorded the first song she wrote, "Coffee," in a friend's bedroom and shared it online in September 2017. Though her goal was to share it with her friends, the song soon had hundreds of thousands of views. "Coffee"'s online success piqued the interest of London's Dirty Hit label, which signed Beabadoobee early in 2018. She released a pair of EPs on the label that year: March's Lice and December's Patched Up, both of which built on her viral single's quietly confessional approach. However, she wanted her music to sound fuller, so she recruited bassist Eliana Sewell, drummer Louis Semlekan-Faith, and guitarist Jacob Bugden to flesh out her sound. Working with former Vaccines drummer Pete Robertson as producer, in April 2019, Beabadoobee issued the Loveworm EP, which introduced a heavier, grunge and shoegaze-inspired attack to her melodies; an acoustic version, Loveworm (Bedroom Sessions), appeared in July. Once again featuring production by Robertson, that October's Space Cadet EP was an even bolder homage to '90s indie and alt-rock.
