Halfway, the new EP from rising artist Ber, is out now via AWAL accompanied by the official video for new track ‘Slutphase’. The EP showcases her lofty range as a songwriter, artist and creator, while growing her already fiercely passionate fanbase. Ber also recently confirmed details of UK live dates which include: The Road To The Great Escape in Glasgow on 6th May
Halfway has already begun to receive critical praise with plays at BBC Radio 1 ; Billboard raves of “Your Internet Sucks” as “a charmingly petty diss track aimed at an ex in London (she studied music in the U.K.), ‘Sucks’ soars thanks to an insistent, gentle rhythm, fuzzy guitar flourishes and delightfully mean-spirited lyrics…” Additionally, V Magazine adds, “with a soft and muted backing track, ‘Superspreader’ allows Ber to show off her sugary-sweet voice and vocal range, along with her stripped back, honest lyrics.”
“I wrote this 6-song EP about not being over a boy that ghosted me (but really trying to be),” Ber recalls. “They all come from that funny and uncomfortable place in between heartbreak/happy and paint a picture of how I felt when I finally felt like I was Halfway through my breakup.”
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. Upon its release, the lead single, “Meant To Be,” immediately went viral and has since amassed over 70 million streams globally.
Having been praised for her heartfelt songwriting and angelic vocals, Ber has garnered support from Zane Lowe as well as Travis Mills and received early support on BBC Radio 1 and Triple A Radio. Ber made her debut performance at SXSW last year as well as Wisconsin’s Summerfest and played alongside Sigrid, Tom Odell, JP Saxe, Holly Humberstone and Maisie Peters.
