We introduced you to BETS back in June with their lusty video “Jenny.” Now the girl band is back with their first full length LP, Days Hours Nights. The ten-song album is the embodiment of a hazy, atmospheric, summer night in the city.
The electro-indie beats hang in the humidity of August nights amongst the cityscape with a trance-like haunt. At first listen, the album is catchy, girlie, and the potential soundtrack of every indie-romance film of the past five years. But on second listen, the album tells a story about being young and a little heartbroken, and moving on with and through other lovers in a Lana del Ray-esque, deadpan delivery. The second single from Days Hours Nights is “Don’t Give a F#ck.” The song’s manipulated trills and forced attitude are an instant favorite. Through masked heartbreak and a fuck-all disposition, BETS personifies a ‘fake-it ’til you make it’ mindset, wrapped up in original and moveable beats.
There are a handful of tracks on this album, “Don’t Give a F#ck,” “Jenny,” and “Cityscape” that stand alone. The in-betweens are at times repetitive and familiar, but dance the listener through from beginning to end. Check out Days Hours Nights for a summer-infused electronic pulse of girlie dance tunes.
