Beti Masenqo – “better than before”


Described as “a nostalgic tune about loving someone who is plagued with uncertainty,” “better than before” is an alluring single from Beti Masenqo. Jangly guitar tones and spacey synth adornments complement a dynamic vocal presence, spanning from a contemplative suaveness in the verses and escalating into a spirited captivation as the glistening synths hit; the hook there — “dreaming better than before,” — reminds fondly of Camera Obscura, particularly when capped off by the tender guitar tone and lush synth caressing in the final minute. Beti Masenqo’s quality songwriting shines on “better than before.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
