Betty Moon, the Southern California based songwriter, producer and larger than life persona has unveiled the new single “Dead Out Of Love” along with her new EP entitled ‘Translucent’. The EP kicks off with the guitar driven single, which is a return to Moon’s rock n’ roll roots with arena-worthy riffs and stellar production paired with Moon’s unforgettable voice. ‘Translucent’ as EP gives the listener a bit of everything Betty Moon has been known for, including layers of electronic, indie, funk and dance energy.
“Dead out of Love” is a brief, but welcome return to form for old school Betty Moon fans, who have experienced her metamorphosis of previous straight up rock singles on past records to inclusion of a refreshing electronic sensibility on recents like “Crazy (What You Make Me)” and “Sound”. Other songs on ‘Translucent’ such as “Your Dirty Love” take the tempo down as she struts her soul-fueled influences before taking things back up with her now widely-known pop/electronic sound on “Did it for Nothing” and “The Liar”. Moon has been in the studio and has completed over 20 ideas with 6 being included on ‘Translucent’ and others being planned for other upcoming 2020 releases.
“The opening riff was penned to catch listeners off guard, and to perhaps impress some of my old school fans who thought I wasn’t writing enough rock riffs” says Moon. “The funny thing is that I’ve always been into different types of music, but this time around I was feeling the world didn’t have enough edgy rock going around, so I’m here to deliver. The lockdown has allowed me plenty of time to write dozens of additional songs and put the final touches on this EP along with others, I have so many stories to tell on these songs.”
Since being signed to a major label in the 90’s, Betty Moon has been known as a queen of DIY work ethic and has since self-released 9 albums via her own label Evolver Music, Inc. Her most recent release was 2019’s ‘Hellucination’ and her music has earned media coverage from Huffington Post, Billboard, Alternative Nation, LA Times, Stencil Magazine, Exclaim!, Vents, Side Stage Magazine, Spill Magazine, Tattoo.com and much more. Moon has continued to defy industry trends, earning worldwide retail airplay, online and college radio rotation and record numbers via over 10,000 Spotify followers, 1.6M+ Facebook fans and over 50,000 followers on Instagram.
Moon’s music draws influence from underground sounds ranging from rock, soul, punk rock, electronic and electro-pop soaked with aggressive, empowering, yet somehow soothing, electrifying the listener with it’s big bold energy. Moon wrote, produced and mixed her latest album ‘Hellucination’, and continues to inject genuine sex appeal, soulful vocal prowess and massive production all the while experimenting with new sounds and modern genre trends. The single “Don’t Stop Now” was released as a standalone single, titled “Dead out of Love” on 6/12 alongside the ‘Translucent’ EP.
