Brooklyn-based indie-pop singer BETS (aka Betsy Hershey) has just released a new track on the heels of her critically acclaimed full-album cover of the Violent Femmes’ 1983 self-titled debut breakout record entitled Project Violent Femmes – a neo-psychedelia shoegaze record with a pop twist that garnered attention from the likes of BlackBook, NYLON, Alternative Press, Culture Collide, and more. Today, the Los-Angeles native releases “Da Da Da” – a rhythmic electro-pop track which will be part of a new album slated for release this Fall. About the track, Betsy comments: “In Trump land sometimes you have to drown out misogyny for three and a half minutes.”
BETS self-released her critically acclaimed debut album Days Hours Nights in 2015 and immediately began to cultivate a steadily-growing following through an international tour across the US, Canada, and Europe. Project Violent Femmes served as a way to continuing garnering attention for BETS on a global scale, acting as a bridge between her debut LP and her sophomore original work coming later this year. Now having an established audience, BETS is an artist entirely her own with over 2 million + YouTube views, 40 appearances on Hype Machine, and praise from the likes of Noisey, Entertainment Weekly, Paste Magazine, and PopMatters.
BETS’ music is highlighted by driving melodies, witty lyrics, and emotional reverberation that connects with fans all over the globe, and her next collection of ethereal, exhilarating songs promises to introduce old and new fans alike to a uniquely hypnotic and fresh sound. With her most ambitious work to date coming this Fall, be sure to check out new single “Da Da Da” and stay tuned for more! Fans in Denver can catch BETS live at the Underground Music Showcase this weekend.
