Betty Black: “Bad Weather” Single

BETTY BLACK
BAD WEATHER – SINGLE
FRAU PINK PRODUCTIONS / KID RECORDINGS 
KIDDEP 10013
DIGITAL RELEASE DATE:  
FEBRUARY 14, 2012

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the southern gothic chanteuse BETTY BLACK (aka singer/songwriter SYLVIA GORDON) returns with “BAD WEATHER”, a joyously twisted tale of love, carnal desire and obsession that captures the intense yearning of star-crossed lovers destined to crash and burn. Gordon creates an immersive paean to the Sixties pop and underground cult classics like RUSS MEYERS’ psychosexual super vixens, ENNIO MORRICONE’S spaghetti westerns and NANCY SINATRA’S provocative steam heat, as well as, DAVID LYNCH’S Blue Velvet and Lost Highway while infusing the retro-modern sounds of contemporaries like LYKKE LI and THE RAVEONETTES. This is the sound of chain gang heartbreak pop at its most obsessive, lustful and thrilling.

For the B-side, Black slows things down on “NEW MEXICAN SUNSET” and the bonus cut “BAD WEATHER (BLACK & CULLERS ALT VERSION)” – an eerie, stripped down drone owing much to BAUHAUS, SUICIDE and SISTERS OF MERCY.

TRACKLISTING:
1. Bad Weather

3. Bad Weather (Black & Cullers Alt Version)* Bonus Track
