Bea Miller may have just entered her most emotional and authentic era yet with the release of ‘This call is coming from inside the house.’ In her latest piece since going independent in 2022, we get to enjoy her crystal-clear vocals intertwined with introspective lyrics. Get ready to dive-deep into everything we adore about her latest release.
The lyrics themselves stand independently and delve into the subconscious mind. Throughout the lyrics, Bea reminds us we can be our own worst enemies. In ‘This call is coming from inside the house’ Bea candidly admits, “the truth is I’m a danger to myself.” Here, Bea realizes that this perceived threat is within her own mind. Another lyric that stands out is, “if I could cry, I’d do it all the time ’cause it seems really nice to let it go,” which reminds fans of the importance of emotional release. Altogether, we think the lyrics are incredibly brave. Acoustically, the song is robust, and Bea’s crisp vocals complement the powerful guitar and drums. This alternative pop sound is a perfect form of escapism. Co-written by Cara Salimando and Colin Brittain, it’s a sonic treat thanks to Bea’s commanding vocal range and the fierce production.

The Visual Story
Firstly, the ‘one-take’ video shows the battle between various versions of Bea and her mind. These visuals are a perfect representation of the story told within the lyrics as she is seen to struggle with her inner turmoil in an eerie room that is illuminated by a single yellow lamp. It feels like we’re witnessing a private moment with the dull background juxtaposing her glamorous self dressed in a white nightgown. Importantly, this contrast is seen throughout the entire visual story. From the onset, the song states Bea’s unavailability, but she spends the entire time alone. It’s a short film we wish was longer.
Directed and produced by Gina Manning, the music video is a cinematic masterpiece! The old Victorian house setting is perfect for suspense. Manning explained the idea of Bea trapped in a single scene represents “the box we put our thoughts in.” Particularly, the video portrays the way our minds sometimes work in circles against us, leaving us feeling trapped and uncertain.
Part 4 of Bea Millers Cabinet
The release of ‘This call is coming from inside the house’ serves as part four to a twelve-part visual compendium known as ‘Bea Miller’s Cabinet’. If you haven’t already, we highly recommend checking out the previous releases!
Within Part four of this chapter, we found ourselves fully immersed in the story and Bea’s mind. On one hand, society suggests we should keep this to ourselves. However, Bea breaks the barriers behind stigma. In part 4, Bea Miller aims to tackle the taboo subject of anxiety and mental health. And honestly, her willingness to confront such a sensitive topic in an unfiltered way is commendable. We eagerly anticipate future installments and are excited about what’s to come!
We absolutely love this era of emotional authenticity. Are you loving this era of Bea’s brutal realism? Let us know @thehoneypop!
