Although Veronica Fusaro has loved music since she was a little girl, it wasn’t until after she won a national competition at the age of 18 at the m4music festival in Zurich, that her passion and love for it drove her to pursue it as a career. Now with a growing online following that already exceeds more than 5000 on Instagram, close 7500 monthly listeners on Spotify and more than 650,000 YouTube views, in the last few years – four to be exact – she’s has more than established herself as a staple of the music business, having played shows at some of the most famous places in the world, including the iconic Glastonbury festival. With plans for a debut album in the works, she’s continuing to churn out the brilliant hits, and GIITV are proud to premiere her brand new single titled ‘Beach.’
Now while you might read the word ‘beach’ and think sun-kissed holiday, Veronica has put her own twist on the word and in relation to her new track, it’s a metaphorical starting point for the weather report of a relationship entered not in the hope of genuine love but as a sweet distraction from humdrum everyday life. The song also pays a sort of homage to the music of her father’s home country of Italy by instrumentally using the idiosyncratic brand of 1950’s jazz with mentions of the late big band singer, Fred Buscaglione, and the bittersweet party mood of Federico Fellini’s ‘La Dolce Vita’.
Asked about the creative process to and behind the song, Veronica says: “I wrote this song around the end of last year by myself in my basement studio. The song is about, you know that feeling you have when you want something but you can’t have it? But instead of facing the problem of why you can’t have that thing in the first place you distract yourself with other fun things and cool stuff (or people). Only problem is that all of these fun things have an ‘expiration date’ so you never end up getting what you actually want.”
