If you were on a night out with ex-fashion designer and Welsh singer / newcomer Betsy and she challenged you to a karaoke competition, beware; you stand absolutely no chance. This woman can sing. Of course if you've heard her debut track Fair you’d already know that, but just in case you missed it, here’s a second example. It’s called Time and it’s lifted from her debut EP which you can hear right now if you hop on over to Spotify or the like.
Whereas Fair took the sonic construction of a big dance tune and heightened the emotion with nothing but strings, ambient textures and keys, Time sticks to a more conventional route; it's a soul-gospel-pop tune that isn't afraid to throw in some beats. Oh, and there’s a budgie in the promo pic. I have absolutely no idea why, but it makes a change from pop stars and potential pop stars posing in the bath, even if it is still quite a silly idea.
