NEW SINGLEs - OUT NOW
“The album we’re listening to over and over right now is project violent femmes by Brooklyn-based indie musician BETS, and it’s a dreamy, shoe gazey cover of the iconic 1983 self-titled debut album from the Violent Femmes. This reimagining is dreamy and gorgeous.."
"It’s a good track for dancing, with a hypnotic piano loop and plenty of bass"
"Remember when summer used to mean something? When it was a vast expanse of freedom opening up before you, with endless possibilities? On her latest, “Summer Fever”, BETS wanted to tap into that combination of potential and hope."
“BlackBook exclusively premieres BETS’ haunting but utterly absorbing cover of the Femmes’ “Blister in the Sun,” with Hershey’s ethereal vocal delivery (think: Hope Sandoval, singing with The Jesus & Mary Chain) stunningly reinventing the jittery classic.”
“BETS really seems to be on to something with her care-free indie pop, we recommend keeping an ear out for her future releases.”
"It’s an album outfitted for the young urbanite just taking things day by day, hitting the inevitable rough patches but also strongly shining at times. BETS, it seems, is poised to be doing more of the latter in the near future."
"BETS is really onto something here. Her drive and talent shows the opposite of not giving a f#ck and for that, I am thankful.”
“Mixing retro pop sounds with sweet, honey-dipped lyrics, the singer makes the kind of music we want to spend an afternoon daydreaming to”
“Lust in the streets, music to our ears.”
