Beth Keeping Premieres New Song “Cool Kids” on BBC Music Introducing The South
- London-based singer-songwriter Beth Keeping premiered a new song “Cool Kids” on BBC Music Introducing The South.
The song is her second single of 2020 following “Two Seats Down” released back in March.
She co-wrote the song with Kaity Rae, who also produced it. She first performed the song at Live Now Play Later in London last November.
“I wrote Cool Kids after I found out that a boy who used to bully me at high school now listens to my music,” Beth Keeping said of the song. “You often find that the kids who were picked on for being different at school end up doing interesting things as adults like creative careers or becoming entrepreneurs or high-tech scientists, so the song explores how that power dynamic changes as we grow up. It’s a fun but honest track that I hope people can relate to!”
She added, “Whether it’s at school or in the workplace, bullying happens when those who are popular or powerful in some way choose to use that power against others. And usually this behaviour is driven by something deeper such as insecurity, peer pressure, personal trauma or having been bullied themselves.”
Beth Keeping, her music is inspired by Delta Goodrem, John Mayer and Martyn Joseph. She debuted with the first EP “Fool” in 2018, which was recorded in Nashville, and won at PRS songwriting prize in 2019.
