5 Things You Didn’t Know About Bec Sandridge

Recently, indie-pop artist, Bec Sandridge unveiled her new bop, Cost Of Love. It’s three and a half minutes of toe-tapping, sing-along vibes. In her words “If Shania Twain + Daft Punk met at an 80s aerobics class, sweatily hooked up and had a gay baby… she would be named ‘Cost of Love’,”

With the help of close friends, Dave Jenkins and Lucy Taylor, Sandridge wrote the tune in their apartment in Sydney with additional production from long term collaborator, Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper). Once grammy-nominated British engineer Geoff Swan touched up the mix, Coast Of Love was ready for the world.

“I wrote this song with dear pals Lucy Taylor and Dave Jenkins Jr. At the time, I was stuck in a kind of tug-of-war, arm-wrestle with myself… Weighing up whether a certain relationship was worth it (the unraveling of a thread, the push and pull in compromise, digging up old and new dirt).

It felt like I had lost myself in a relationship that had a relatively frail foundation.

Despite the rocky-ness of the whole thing, we kept trying to build upon it beyond the used-by-date…I guess, we attempted to roll the shit in shit-tonnes of glitter to a degree. This song was my attempt to explore being logical in love and answer the question of: “how do you know when to call it before you lose all of yourself and in turn, each-other?”  – BEC SANDRIDGE
