Oslo based singer/songwriter Beharie shares his new single ‘Simple Mistake’ today, after releasing a beautiful music video together with Mahogany earlier this month. He performed an acoustic version of his song ‘Point of View’ for Mahogany’s Home Editions series, directed by Martin Bremnes.
Beharie’s new single ‘Simple Mistake’ narrates the naivety of continuing with a relationship that you know has an expiry date, despite seeing all the signs. Feeling captivated by a person you know is wrong for you, but for one reason or another, continuously being drawn back into the romance. “Throwing a dice that can’t win. I lost my head”. Beharie’s vulnerable vocals are immersed in delicate harmonies located deep within the indie-soul landscape, with a lull of calming percussion and soothing guitars drifting in the background.
Beharie (Christian Beharie) is a young, old soul with a distinctive expression that balances neatly between searching for an identity and independence. Drawing inspiration from artists like Frank Ocean, Moses Sumney and Leon Bridges, Beharie pulls the strings between the rawness of soul and the melodic and experimental lines from pop, indie and the singer/songwriter genre.
Despite being early on in his solo career, his latest EP ‘Beharie // Beharie’ was already nominated for Spellemann (Norwegian Grammy awards), in the category R&B/Soul. Beharie is ready to bring his ever-developing sound to the airwaves of Scandinavia and the rest of the world this year.
