Rising artist Ber has shared her new single Boys Who Kiss You In Their Car, alongside an official video.
The song was written after Ber discovered that she had a ‘type’. As she explains, “This song was written right after I realized (ashamedly) that I may have a type. I wanted to show another side to myself with this song, and my friends Now Now were the perfect bridge into the grungier, tongue-in-cheek world that is this song. It’s about the sea of a very specific type of boy I found myself swiping between on tinder and hinge while exploring the dating scene in Minneapolis, and after about 5 dates with different guys, where they all suggested we just “go for a drive” soundtracked by the first 1975 album, I had dubbed them the boys who kiss you in their car and written them this song.”
The tracks follows on from her recent release Superspreader and comes ahead of additional music she plans to release this year. Superspreader picked up significant media praise and added to the already 50 million streams she had for early release Meant To Be.
Originally hailing from Bemidji, Minnesota, Ber spent most of her early adult life residing in the U.K. before moving back home in 2021 where she lived in her uncle’s basement. During this unexpected transition Ber began to create her debut EP, And I’m Still Thinking About That, remotely while collaborating with the likes of Sfven, Hazel English and Hot Dennis. Its lead single immediately went viral as Ber also hit SXSW, Latitude and Wisconsin’s Summerfest, as well as touring with Tom Odell. She recently played her debut London show at a packed Courtyard Theatre.
