Comment: Betcha is a Nashville-based alt-rock band that got its start in a college dorm room. The band consists of Ben on lead guitar, Taylor on bass/keys, Charlie on vocals/guitar, and Chase on drums. Betcha, a combinations of their initials, released their debut EP, “Falling,” to critical acclaim in 2019, receiving significant support on Spotify playlists. The band has also toured across the States alongside acts like NEEDTOBREATHE, and Judah & the Lion, building a loyal fan base along the way.
“I Wish You Would” is the band’s second to last single and is a great introduction to their music. It is a captivating and introspective track that showcases the band’s ability to blend rock, alternative, and pop elements seamlessly. The lyrics are relatable and speak to the universal struggle of feeling lost and uncertain about the future. Charlie’s vulnerability shines through in lines like “I wish you would, I wish you wouldn’t, take this pain away,” and the chorus’s catchy melody is sure to stick in listeners’ heads long after the song ends.
Last but no least, I really really loved the song’s outro. It deserves a chef’s kiss.
