Originality of the songwriting and production style sets Fontaine apart, but also the willingness to mesh genres in interesting ways.

The energy is big and the arrangement is bold. This song goes from smooth pop-funk to clenched-fist rock and back again. It's not every day you can name drop Jason Mraz and Rage Against The Machine in the same song review.

Originality of the songwriting and production style sets Fontaine apart, but also the willingness to mesh genres in interesting ways; it's the raw synergy of the stuff itself, and the quality of the delivery that makes the difference. The production is spotless, the song is complex, and it just sounds good.

“You’ve got war in your veins
spinning words into rhymes
at a price I could never pay”— Fontaine

Fontaine is a Folk and Alternative Rock band from Boston, MA. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
