Bec Sandridge - 'Cost Of Love'

  • 2 min read

“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’,” shares Bec Sandridge on her latest single. A driven track that finds life through shuffling drums, hooky guitars, and of course Sandridge’s unmistakable voice, ‘Cost Of Love’ is without question, a testament to Sandridge’s ability to write a sophisticated and unforgettable pop-banger.

Working with prolific songwriter and producer Dave Jenkins Jr (Daniel Johns, Vera Blue) and Lucy Taylor (Dua Lipa, Ellie Goulding), Sandridge wrote ‘Cost Of Love’ at their apartment in Clovelly in Sydney with additional production from long term collaborator Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper). Grammy-nominated British engineer Geoff Swan (Charlie XCX, Haim) took the final reins mixing ‘Cost Of Love’ set for a global stage. 

Bec explained, “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?”

'Cost Of Love’ is the first track to be shared from Bec Sandridge’s collection of new songs on her ‘Lost Dog’ EP; due out October 7th. Combining elements of pop and dance-synth hooks, the new EP highlights her love of bold soundscapes which transport listeners into an alternate state. As always, the songs are framed by her signature sound (and love) of sad songs that are danceable.

Following a headline East Coast tour in 2019 and various support slots for Naked and Famous, Yungblud, The Rubens, Cub Sport, Montaigne, plus performing at various festivals (Falls festival, Groovin’ The Moo, The Plot, Festival of The Sun), Bec Sandridge will be returning to the stage and commanding our attention in August.
