Betty Pulls A Fast One - Swing Like Summer

Betty Pulls A Fast One – Swing Like Summer

Frequently featured since the middle of last year Betty Pulls A Fast One always return to the table with a new idea.

In Swing Like Summer – one is minded of the sadness of Strange Fruit by Billie Holiday from 1939. Although there is approaching an eighty year time gap – though Billie Holiday was more explicit in lyric in Swing Like Summer that same sentiment of societal deconstruction is evident in the pianoforte led ballad that lays wrapped in the ears long after the notes have faded in to silence.

There are numerous tracks which have surfaced over the past couple of months, each bringing a new idea to the table and able to stand alone its own feet and marking an album full of individual diamonds. My preference of which – is not the newest to be revealed.

The title track Gravity Wave has a sultry hip thrusting intonation that is best heard in company with at least one partner as oiled loins intertwine to the psychedelic just under five minutes of undulating guitar and electronica. If there was ever a track that needed an extended version to satiate the induced lust – this is a prime example.

An intriguing combination of heavy-metal and indie-light tumbles out of the speakers and yet, rather than sounding like a bad idea inevitably going to end in a car crash, the elements line themselves up in good order leaving the listener in the juxtaposed position of playing air-guitar and head-banging whilst skipping happily around the dance-floor and calling for more.

From the five track release Another One is the second.

Francobollo are unafraid to test themselves or the listener with their packed and ever different soundscapes, which may be progressive, psychedelic, angular or in the case of Worried Times from the forthcoming album, dance-floor. Though rest assured whatever they deliver is played with panache, style and ability with the knack of capturing and holding attention.

Regularly featured since their introduction in 2014 after line-up changes and the addition of a fifth player – Jesus Let Me Fly, from the forthcoming release, is a more expansive sound than previous material.

The shoegazey guitars echo like spinning crystals refracting sunlight through the room as the stretched notes are weighted by blocky concrete bass and percussion giving Jesus Let Me Fly a clear sense of direction from which the gauzy vocal drifts dreamily through the ears.
