The new one from BETSY is the kind of fist-pumping joy that we long for from the golden age of pop power. ‘Waiting’ has the kind of soaring strings and vocals to deliver a song from pop cheese for a complete banger. The accompanying video’s a surreal pastel-tone vision, like a Petra Collins gallery come-to-life.
BETSY’s had an eccentric path to stardom: raised on campfire singalongs and her parents record collection on a Welsh goose farm and her fallback is a career designing for high fashion – worse things to be doing. She describes ‘Waiting’ as “That fire and excitement you feel when you meet someone new, fall hook, line and sinker, and it feels like you’ve been waiting your whole life for them.”
