Betty Who – The High Society Tour
- Who’s Betty Who: An Australian synth-pop singer. Birth-name Jessica Newham.
- When you might have first heard her romantic single “Somebody Loves You”: in the viral wedding-proposal video where a flash mob danced to it in a Home Depot
- Non-nuptial-related place where you’ve heard her sharpened pop sensibility: on her EPs, The Movement and Slow Dancing, and her studio album, Take Me When You Go
- Instruments she plays besides the vocal chords: cello, guitar, piano
- How Variance Magazine describes her music: “decidedly honest and accessible for listeners at any period of life”
- How we describe it: dance- or skate-ready anthems that mix disco bass with new-wave synths and exuberant handclaps
- Also appearing: indie rockers Joywave, electro-pop duo Great Good Fine Ok
