Track Of The Day: Beckie Margaret – ‘FF’

A stirring reflection on the strength and resilience of her own emotions, Essex songwriter Beckie Margaret has shared her latest single ‘FF’. Released via Cool Thing Records, the track is inspired by the Bob Marley quote: “I don’t have that type of richness. My richness is life, forever…” and it shimmers with a soulful splendour.

Holed up in her hometown of Southend, Beckie has spent the last twelve months recording her debut album with the help of producer, mix engineer and drummer Rees Broomfield (Youth Club) and guitarist Daryl Tattoo. The songwriter has crafted a record centres around her experiences of life and love so far, and her third single “FF” continues this rich personal narrative.

“’FF’ is a self-reflective statement, mixed with the voicing of modern themes about allowing vulnerability and love,” Beckie explains. “The disappointment of expectations and pedestals from people that have let you down emotionally, yet you still feel rich from filling your own cup.”

Opening the track with the striking lyric “I don’t settle for my lyrics like I settle for my men,” Beckie muses about her losses and gains over tentative beats, gentle keys and atmospheric riffs. Her soft, lilting voice dulls the ache of insecurity, as she admits “My self-love expired / but I swear I’m not empty.” On ‘FF’, Beckie openly acknowledges her doubts and embraces them with an intense empathy, making her latest offering shine with a poignant, poetic power.
