Oh, my… total song crush alert.
LA’s Pom Poms are a duo made up of Grammy-nominated producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Billy Mohler and divine fifties throwback, singer/songwriter, Marlene Gold.
Not that Billy – who’s worked with the likes of Macy Gray, Lady Gaga and The Airbourne Toxic Event – has to wear his producer hat with this project, “It just has this resonance, and this feeling, and any time I’ve ever tried to go back and fix something or replace something, I’ve lost every time. I always go back to just the scratch take of what I had.”
Debut single ‘Betty‘ is an example of just that; a seductive, cinematic track, that harks back to a bygone era, while remaining both fresh and beguiling.
We can’t wait to hear more. In the meantime, this one’s on repeat.
Check out Introducing: Pom Poms.
‘Betty’ is out now via Square Foot Records.
