Bec is back.

Bec Goring is a jack of all trades. Not only is she a gun footy player for Geelong Cats in the AFLW but she is also a fantastic musician that has just released her debut album Beware.

Following the release of her EP ‘Home’ which was put out last year, Beware is dirty and angular and takes homage to the big names of Blues/Rock and Roll music. Bec has gained a lot of popularity over the years after supporting the likes of some of Melbourne’s iconic artists such as Alex Lahey, Cash Savage & The Last Drinks, Liz Stringer and Bec Sandridge and it’s these influences that shine through her album.

The thing that stands out in this album is that it’s so captivating from the first track all the way to the last. The opening track ‘Pay Gap’ is mysterious and dirty and captivates the listener almost instantly with the powerful but yet soft lyricism.

The powerful themes of each song carry on throughout the rest of the album on tracks such as ‘Bruise’, ‘Beware’ and ‘Wolf’. My favourite track however would have to be ‘Play On’. This track instrumentally stood out to me with the soft vocals and guitars with droney backgrounds sounds with lyrics based around her football career.

The album ends on an uplifting track with fuzzy guitars and strong vocals. You can really hear why she was nominated for ‘Live Guitarist of the Year’ in 2020 by the National Live Music Awards. Her sound from this album really does go hand in hand with Bec’s live performances.

Clocking in at 32 minutes, this eight track album is definitely worth listening to as it just shouts album of the year contender to every listener, leaving you very excited to see what Bec has in store for the near future.

You can check out the album below or via Spotify or Bandcamp.
