After support from the nationally renowned Jack Saunders on BBC Radio 1 on her last single, Belot has returned with another bouncy electronic infused offering in latest single ‘Get This’.
Belot, who is a pioneer of a genre she claims to be called ‘awkward pop’, has a knack for creating songs which may be perceived as irritatingly catchy as the choruses bounce round in your head much beyond hearing the song.
‘Get This’ is a track which features some really well produced electronic parts, bouncy rhythms and just an all round cheeky feel. The bass in this is probably the standout of the track with a real funky pop to it.
On the downside – this track is, to say the least, extremely repetitive. Although a harsh criticism, it almost just feels for the majority of this track like the chorus is just being repeated over and over again. I can understand repetition as a technique within writing to emphasise the hook of a song – however this just feels a little overboard.
I think given a little more time and attention, this song could be a lot better. This is by no means me slamming the song as it’s clear to see the quality of writer that Belot really is on the rest of her discography.
