This Valentine’s day Toronto artist Virginia to Vegas released their new single “betterman”. The catchy pop song is just a sneak-peek into the new music on the way, with their new EP, a constant state of improvement scheduled to be released on February 28th on Wax Records.
Speaking on the new track, Virginia to Vegas (aka Derik Baker) had this to say,
““betterman” is a song about personal growth and reflection; In my personal life and career, I’ve experienced many ups and downs, but ultimately the one thing I’ve found to calm anxiety and doubt is putting in work on myself. This song touches on the idea of growing up following a breakup and the journey home.”
