All Of Betty Who, For All Of You
Tuesday, September 16, 2014
Betty Who's 2013 collaboration with her producer BFF Peter Thomas, "All Of You" is making the rounds now, and though from the looks of the tracklisting, the fizzy pop number will not be encased in the glossy flossy of Miss Who's upcoming debut album, Take Me Where You Go (out October 7th). But you can still throw some glitter in the air for it, I mean, it's somewhat new Betty Who after all...what's not to like?
The summer kissed "All Of You" is an urgent banger flourished with wave crashing synths that amp up Who's vigorous vocal, rather than drowns it out. It fits right into the '80s synth pop trap that she has keenly set herself up in, sounding like a more relaxed second cousin to Who's massive, "Heartbreak Dream".
Also, 19 days ago (according to my SoundCloud stream...) I was either too wrapped up in my daydreams or binge watching Netflix again, as Betty Who dropped "Runaways", one of her newbie tracks from Take Me Where You Go. It's not as interesting as the numbers found on Slow Dancing or last year's The Movement (I'm sorry but nothing beats "Lovin' Start" or "High Society") no matter its La Roux-y exterior, but I repeat, it's Betty Who newness, and there is always something to like about it.
