BETSIE GØLD – “Friday the 13th” single
“You’re wondering why do I knock on wood. But I can’t believe that I got it this good. And I’m terrified of cracking the mirror and you and I will just disappear. What am I doing? I’m pushing decline your calls like your number is 666. Am I being stupid? So irrational, baby. Oh, you must be thinking I’m losing it.” – lyrics
‘Friday the 13th’ tells a relatable tale of a superstitious young woman who believes something bad will always happen to the relationship that she shares with her significant other. Every day, she believes her partner won’t return home, even though her companion states otherwise. Later, she admits that stepping over the cracks in the pavement and thinking ill is making her sick.
‘Friday the 13th’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the pessimistic tune possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with dark pop energy.
“Every day is always ‘Friday the 13th’”
“I wrote ‘Friday the 13th’ with my songwriting partner and producer, Kaity Rae, on a Friday the 13th. So much went wrong for both of us that day and the last straw was when a cactus fell from a shelf directly onto her face. She screamed, ‘F*** Friday the 13th!’ And the hilarity of that situation (the image of her pulling needles from her forehead still sticks with me) meant there was nothing else I could’ve called the song we wrote that day. Once all cactus needles had been safely removed, we talked about superstitions and how even when I’m in a great place I always assume something is going to go wrong, instead of just enjoying the moment. The song pretty much wrote itself as it’s a true representation of my mindset and track record. I guess I’m an optimistic pessimist.” – BETSIE GØLD
BETSIE GØLD’s musical palate is wide-ranging and encompasses Blondie, The Goo Goo Dolls, Bon Jovi, Billie Eilish, Nina Nesbitt, Anne-Marie, and L Devine. Also, the self-taught guitarist honed her craft on Taylor Swift’s catalog and set her mind to pursuing music after a school friend introduced her to Bon Jovi’s biggest hits.
A few years later, her tenacity and determination secured her an opening spot in front of 20,000 people on the Canadian leg of Bon Jovi’s tour. Since then, she’s played the main stage at Truck Festival, Reading Festival, and has formed an electric creative partnership with Kaity Rae, who she describes as her musical soulmate. The two worked together on the tracks, “Only One”, “House on Fire”, “Looking That Way”, “Craving You”, “Ur The Party”, and “Friday the 13th”.
