The unstoppable Betty Moon just released the music video for “Crazy (What You Make Me),” a song from her most recent album, Hellucination, which dropped this past summer.
Hellucination, Moon’s ninth studio album, delivered a number of hits, including “Save My Soul” and “Runaway.” In fact, two songs on the album put Moon on the Grammy ballot this year in four categories: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Music Video, and Best Pop Solo Performance.
Now based in Los Angeles, where she runs Evolver Music, Moon got her start in Toronto, where as a teenager she fronted a band called Bambi, which released a homemade album, entitled Rock On. The album sold more than 10,000 copies, a remarkable feat. Naturally, the big labels took notice and in the end A&M/Universal signed Moon, followed by releasing her self-titled debut album.
Moon’s music spans the spectrum, ranging from EDM to hard rock, and everything in between. She has an innate ability to blend genres into tasty concoctions rife with edgy projections and contagious rhythms.
“Crazy (What You Make Me)” rides retro a house melody saturated with house savors from the ‘90s fused with a pulsating electro-pop rhythm, contagiously magnetic. The exotic-erotic textures of Moon’s voice imbue the lyrics with voluptuous timbres.
“I sold my soul / I did it all for you.”
Radiant vocal harmonies outline the erogenous flavor of Moon’s voice, as she tells the tale of a relationship full of mad thrills, passion, and in the end, a senseless hollowness akin to reckless lunacy.
Moon directed the video, in which she is constrained by a straight-jacket in a room devoid of furniture. As the far wall mutates, discharging rotating enveloping colors, Moon sits on the floor bathed in garish auras indicative of her mental and emotional state.
“Crazy (What You Make Me)” is crazily appealing, delivering a pulsating groove perfect for dancing, along with the wickedly seductive voice of Betty Moon.
