“Betty – Alt Version”
One of CMJ’s Breakout Acts of the CMJ festival 2015
Pom Poms have shared an alternative version of their debut single “Betty”, out now on Square Foot Records. “Betty – Alt. Version” re-imagines the cinematic garage pop of the original with a lush bossa nova rhythm and string arrangement and a sensuous vocal. Listen to it where it premiered on CMJ and here.
Following their rapturous sets at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and The Satellite in Los Angeles, Pom Poms released the “Betty” video. The California noir meets Warhol screen test imagery underscores the cinematic track. Watch it here.
Pom Poms are a new Los Angeles based group founded by vocalist/songwriter Marlene and Grammy-nominated producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Billy Mohler (Awolnation, Liz Phair, Kelly Clarkson, Macy Gray). The atemporal sound of “Betty,” which evokes a time and place that exists only in our dreams was their genesis. Their desire to put their distinctive spin on the sound of the great singers and writers they love from years gone by, inspired them to create a project that transcends both nostalgia and current tendencies with grand martini-infused arrangements and melodies. Their intoxicating cocktail mixes references like Quentin Tarantino, Ernie Kovacs, Roy Orbison, The Twilight Zone, Wes Anderson, Jean-Luc Godard, Yves Montand, Connie Francis, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline with their own refreshing perspective.
