Reb Fountain can suspend gravity with her voice. With a unique approach to melodies and songwriting, you’ll see why her storytelling has an edge. Lyrics dive deeper into her personality, style and the kind of structure she gives her songs. This is watching a sculptor sculpt with feel and drive. This is her latest song and our latest muse, Faithless Lover.
It’s all about the lies and how they are perceived. What is a white lie to someone isn’t to the other. There is an echo of this sentiment spliced within this song, woven into its being. It makes for the gravity of the tone, and the sombre melody that accompanies it. Reb Fountain has a stunning connect with how she delivers the lyrics in this case. You can almost feel the hurt, anger and the crashing of trust within each line uttered. The percussion breathes, with space, rather than just assisting the song like a programmed one would. There is absolutely no strain in Reb Fountain’s vocals, just the echo of expression and the commitment to the symphony. An orchestral haunt is left behind with you, as you share the feelings she experienced.
Her 2020 album is a masterclass to anyone who is attempting to put together the themes of an album. From her vulnerability to ideas of love and life, she has approached them all. Being self-titled, keeps it in frame for posterity’s sake as well. I could see this fitting perfectly in Gone Girl, without a break. It fits the theme, holds on to the scenes as well. Reb Fountain is here to mesmerize you with her music, and she is just getting warmed up!
