Beabadoobee Kidnaps A Wealthy Executive In Her Heist Film-Inspired ‘Cologne’ Video

UK songwriter Beabadoobee has captured audiences with her stunning down-to-earth ballads and trademark 90’s-era indie sound. Now following up on her 2020 debut LP Fake It Flowers, the singer unveils her 2021 North American tour dates and celebrates the release of her EP Our Extended Play with a captivating video to her track “Cologne.”

Directed by The Rest, Beabadoobee’s “Cologne” video is inspired by classic heist films. She and a group of her pals take a road trip to the mansion of a wealthy industry executive, tricking him into letting her band perform. Once inside the building, Beabadoobee and her bandmates kidnap the executive and hold him ransom while stealing various items from his opulent home.

In a statement about the EP as a whole, Beabadoobee praised her collaborators Matty Healy and George Daniel, both of The 1975:

“This EP was made in a really collaborative way during a time where it was really difficult to do that and I feel so lucky to have gotten to make it with my band and Matty and George. I hope it can bring people together in some way, that’s really what these songs are about, that feeling of togetherness that’s been missing a lot in the last year. It feels like a bridge to what’s coming next too.”
