Because I am here for these girls. The sound is becoming clearer with each release:  harmonies, melancholia and, always, a strong emphasis on melody.



Say Lou Lou release Everything We Touch with a b-side called Peppermint on May 18.

Spring Songs #5: Heartbreak Dream

The first time I heard Betty Who's new single, Heartbreak Dream, I had a sort of meh reaction. The vocals seemed a bit buried, the melody didn't pop.

This has changed.

I should not have doubted Betty/aka Jess. After maybe 3 plays, the chorus started to worm in and then the emotionalism of the lyric got me, espcecially in the middle eight:
When you hold me, it feels you don't know me.
We are worlds apart.
When you kiss me, I know you haven't missed me.
You keep breaking my heart.

Tears, tears, tears. Another epic!



Heartbreak Dream is from a new EP called Slow Dancing, due out in April.
