The Fontaines – Two Bodies
Los Angeles-based indie and new wave group The Fontaines consist of Charlotte Fontaine (vocals) and Hank Fontaine (guitar), who began writing new wave influences rock songs after growing up all over the world. The brother-sister duo are joined by Chrystian Kaplan (drums) and Daniel Zuker (bass).
In 2016, The Fontaines’ combined efforts lead them to perform at many music festivals including Savannah Stopover, Canadian Music Week, Broke LA, and Make Music Pasadena. Later that year, the band released their new EP, ii, which has gotten airplay on KROQ in Los Angeles. 2017 also proves to be a busy year for them, having released their new single “Evaporate” in February and in March, the group made their official SXSW debut.
Consistent to their new wave, retro sound The Fontaines’ track “Two Bodies” envelopes the 80’s vibe and whole-heartedly portrays the era in mainly hues of reds, blues, and purples in raw photographic instances in their music video. The indie group’s sound are comprised of electronic bleeps and blips with flares of invigorating backbeat. With a controlled mellow style, the indie-pop/rock vibe is embellished with Charlotte’s sultry vocals. The music video opens up with the sun rising over the surface of the earth and mainly focuses on Charlotte as her silky voice brings to life the bits of funk embedded in the track. “Two Bodies” has a great indie groove with a new wave twist to it.
Following the trajectory of their previous year of industry, The Fontaines plan on releasing a series of singles and EPs and touring the US.
“Two Bodies” is due for release in June 9th.
