Los Angeles' Go Betty Go won us over with "Keep Up," and now the Latina punk band are back with a new single. If we thought "Keep Up" was a shining example of melodic punk, "We Talk a Lot" goes a step further into melody. The song is filled with pop hooks without being pop punk, and includes some of my favorite "oh-oh-oh-ohhhhh"s of any punk song this year. It's an upbeat and sunny sounding track with guitars that still bite. Go Betty Go are a glorious example of power pop mixed with punk rock, and "We Talk a Lot" is an absolute joy to listen to.
Lead vocalist Nicolette Vilar says of the new song:
“‘We Talk A Lot’ is a song that dives into that feeling we all feel and have felt, when you're falling in love with a friend, partner, life, etc… and you just want to take off on an adventure together and have it never end. It's a wonderful place to be and hopefully, everyone has a chance to experience that at least once in their life. And if it hasn't happened to you yet, it's a glimpse into what it could be like and a way to look forward to the day it does happen. The song comes from a sincere place. I had so much fun illustrating and animating the lyric video for this song. I tapped into graphic skills that I hadn't done in years, so it was truly a fun project from start to finish.”
