Beabadoobee’s Tokyo travel diary

The former FACE cover star flew all the way to Japan to shoot the video for new track Ever Seen. Here’s what she got up to when she wasn’t “working”.

Chilling with deers in Nara Park, singing karaoke in a faux fur coat, riding on pedalos and eating immaculately presented sushi: these are just a few of the activities that were on Beabadoobee’s agenda for her recent trip to Tokyo, where she filmed the music video for her euphoric summer track Ever Seen.

Shot in various scenic spots in the city, the song is all about the rush of falling in love, with cute, gushy lines such as, He said I had the prettiest eyes he’d ever seen”. It’s apt, then, that Bea’s boyfriend and director Jake Erland was behind the camera for the shoot, having previously directed the videos for Glue Song and The Way Things Go.

A summer trip to Tokyo for work, eh? We see what you did there, Bea. The former FACE cover star dropped the music video last week, in which you can see her get up to all of the above. But Bea also handed her personal pics over to us to give you an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the video shoot, as well as some extra snaps from her time in Japan.

Jake looks cute in this pic because he is smiling and I love him.”

This is before I flew and I was really scared.”

Me and Luby Sparks, my favourite Japanese band. They are awesome. Hanging out with them was super fun.”

This was in-between takes of the Ever Seen music video.”

Filming music videos with my boyfriend is so much fun, cos we get to travel everywhere.”

I just thought I looked cute and really happy.”

Me and Erica singing karaoke. I think we sang Gwen Stefani.”

This is on the night of Jake’s birthday. I’m not sure what song we sang, but we had lots of fun.”

Jake is my personal photographer.”

I love Nara Park so much, but the deers pulled down my skirt twice.”

Working with Jake is cute, but sometimes I don’t listen to him and I like posing for the camera instead.”
