[ALBUM REVIEW] Betty Who: Take Me When You Go
Yesterday marked the release of Betty Who's debut LP, Take Me When You Go, via RCA Records. The thirteen song collection echoes iconic pop with a renewed energy. The album is the work of an artist with an unexpectedly diverse and dynamic range, a true testament to her exceptional talent that sets her apart from any pre-fab pop star.
At times Betty channels the haunting depth and experimental edge of Robyn, the spunky optimism of Cyndi Lauper, the captivating exuberance of early Madonna, all while remaining genuinely no one else but herself. Did we mention those hooks worthy of Katy Perry and Britney Spears? The release of her debut LP firmly places Betty among these iconic woman of pop, and marks the first chapter in what will surely be one of pop music's greatest stories.
Betty Who kicked off her High Society Tour, which may be the most solid pop line up of the year, with Joywave and Great Good Fine Ok in Washington, DC at the Fillmore in Silver Spring. Tonight is performing at the first of many sold out shows in New York City's landmark Irving Plaza. Make sure to get tickets to this not to be missed tour when it comes to city near you.
