CRITIC REVIEWS

NME

‘Space Cadet’ builds on Bea’s astute songwriting and is a bold revolution for another bright young artist showing off Gen Z’s attitude to take something tried-and-tested and give it a new lease of life.

Dork

From the word go, this is a fuller, more focused take on the template - scuzzy guitars and slacker pop perfection.

The Line of Best Fit

Kristi wears her heart on her sleeve, and she doesn’t care who sees it.

Exclaim!
That she was able to spin emotional stakes out of such basic subject matter as her bass-playing bestie and love for '90s alt-rock, coupled with the sheer speed of her progression as a songwriter, suggests big things to come.

Beabadoobee's sound isn't really out of the ordinary, but "Space Cadet" is a good, rough-around-the-edges indie rock EP with some decent songwriting and pretty good production. Also, Matt Healy plays guitar on a couple of tracks. That's cool.

A cute indie rock EP for your enjoyment.

Bea channels some 90's sound but also some of the female-fronted acts that have become popular recently (Diet Cig comes to mind). Not much to say besides its really good, and there some really great song-writing. Also liked a lot of the guitar riffs throughout. Oh, and there's a contribution on the title-track from..... Me.

Guess on that point, I'm obligated to love it.

Who is this girl with the "I live in Space" persona?
Uh yeah, that was MY gimmick first... fucking thief.

Neat little EP though besides the blatant plagiarism of which I will be seeking legal action.

The title track is brilliant. Definitely paying more attention to Beabadoobee

The title track is okay, but this EP is quite boring. It's kinda cute, but is definitely nothing special.
