The indie pop jam once again highlights her songwriting abilities. Listen to the single above now and read a quote from Ci major on the new track above now!

“I actually woke up in the middle of the night one day in May 2020 with one word on my mind: “guillotine”. It’s a little dark but as soon as I woke up I was thinking how it could be such a cool concept for a song! I spent the next week or so fleshing out the lyrics and creating the demo production. The original version was actually a lot more moody and mellow than this really bright and more upbeat version that was created with my friend, Féz, over in the UK. He absolutely crushed the production and honestly transformed it into a hit!” – Ci Majr

Chill, Pop | BETSIE GØLD Releases “Birthday Sadness”

Posted by on December 11, 2020

Rising UK based singer and songwriter BETSIE GØLD is back once again with her self-described ‘BITCH PØP’ vibe on a more emotional single “Birthday Sadness”. Capturing more of that same textured and sweeping aesthetic, this new offering sees her in a more intimate light as she swoons and serenades us through this wistful pop stunner. Check out a quote from her on the release below and stream “Birthday Sadness” above now!

I wrote ‘Birthday Sadness’ with Kaity Rae in our first session since lockdown. The track originally started off pretty upbeat with completely different production, but we couldn’t seem to get anything down. The more we spoke about how this year has made having a birthday even more scary because it’s like we’ve had the entire year taken from us with nothing to show for it, the more the lyrics poured out. Kaity re-did the production and the rest came together. We’re constantly led to believe that time is running out and that everything has to be figured out so young. It’s an impossible ideal. Every year (especially one like this) birthdays make you face everything that has or hasn’t changed, good or bad. I miss the years of not being able to sleep because I was so excited for my birthday, because the only thing that mattered was the party, presents and cake.” – BETSIE GØLD

I ultimately took the record over and added my signature bass sounds and production. I am really happy with how the final product came out, and I hope the listener enjoys it too!”

The fluidity of the instrumentals elegantly begin whilst emphatically building, defined by tender piano keys and rich, mellow guitar strums, coated in irresistable harmonic vocals. Listen to the song above now and check out a quote from the band below!

‘This House’ is a song that really takes you on a journey, the lyrics describe an eye opening moment in my life when I realised I had some unhealthy and sometimes unconscious biases that I needed to confront and deal with. We really tried to capture that journey in the song leaving loads of space for the story and the structure to develop and ultimately to create this moment of real unity at the end.”
