Betty Who Announces New EP ‘Slow Dancing’ And U.S. Tour

Betty Who will release her much-anticipated second EP, ‘Slow Dancing’ (RCA Records) on April 8, 2014. Named an “Act to Watch” this year by Time Magazine, MTV, Refinery29, Huffington Post, and more, the 22-year-old Australian-born singer will also embark on a 20 city U.S. run, The Slow Dancing Tour, on March 22nd (dates below).

Praised for her “distinctly bright voice and arresting pop textures” (Billboard), Who has been described as a mixture of “early Madonna,” “Katy Perry and Robyn, with spunk and confidence” (NY Mag). The “smart, infectious” (Elle) songwriting on her new EP will solidify her place as “the next great pop star” (Idolator).

“Heartbreak Dream,” the EP’s anthemic single, (to be released on 2/18) has been a fan favorite at shows since last fall. Songs like “Alone Again”— which Who describes as sounding like “Prince and ABBA had a baby”—or “Giving Me Away,” epitomize what Who says has inspired her music: “We’re all secretly wrecks and we’re all in love and all being heartbroken,” she says. “Combining those things for me has been a huge tool to get the sound I want.”

The NYC-based, Berklee grad has earned praise across the mainstream and indie spectrums for her acclaimed debut EP, ‘The Movement’ and her live show, which Buzzfeed says, “You HAVE to see.”

Zak Waters and Cardiknox will open for Betty Who throughout the tour.
