Geena Fontanella, Diamonds Review
Geena Fontanella is an LA-based independent artist born and raised in Southern California. Her infusion of raw storytelling and a fresh take on production brings her dark/new age pop persona to life. Though she’s back in her home state after residing in Nashville, music takes Fontanella all over the map. She’s toured throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia, playing prominent venues such as Hotel Cafe (Los Angeles, CA), Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), The Crocodile (Seattle, WA), The Vanguard (Tulsa, OK), The Sound Lounge (London, UK), as well as International Indie Music Festival (Jakarta, Indonesia). Fontanella has a new single “Diamonds,” in anticipation of her new EP, Head Space, coming in the Spring 2019.Positives: Ethereal silky-smooth vocals, introspective lyrics and hint of what’s to come with her impending EP. Bottom Line: Hip beats, Fontanella uses rhythmic intricacies to add interest to the melody; her elastic voice whispers a honeyed effortlessness. Replete with 80s guitar and ghostly vocal swirls that lace the track with a flowing sound. Lyrically Fontanella offers the listener a hook-oriented electricity to her storytelling. She explains, “There’s something electric that happens when a man makes you feel like the only one in the room. It’s magnetic, exciting. If you can find someone who focuses on you first, then you’ll always feel like a treasure.” This emotion is eloquently exhibited on her single “Diamonds.” That’s the short of it!
