Premiering today on The Untitled Magazine from 23-year-old emerging musician Veronica Fusaro’s is her latest track “Fool,” a preview of what we can look forward to from her forthcoming debut album. The Italian Swiss-based songwriter writes authentic storytelling pop songs interweaved with powerful melodies and plenty of heart that shimmers somewhere between retro soul and future pop. Following on from her most recent summer-inspired single ’Beach’ and first release from her debut album, 2nd single ’Fool’, is a story about lies, deceit, and a broken heart.
The singer’s strong vocal performance delivers a realization of true strength after being hurt. “Don’t think that I am foolish / Don’t think that I am blind,” she sings. The bluesy ballad with a rocky finish once again showcases Fusaro’s talent for range – sometimes mellow, sometimes singing velvety, and sometimes belting. Should Tarantino ever make a romantic drama – “Fool” would be the perfect piece for the soundtrack.
