I’ve been a fan of Cailin Russo for a couple of years now. Not only is she a stellar solo artist but also the frontwoman of the band, obviously named, Russo. In between band hiatus’, Cailin has released solo music that emulates a young Amy Winehouse.
Russo’s latest single, “Fade” is one of her best to date. Pulling on traditional alternative sounds and melodies, Russo pulls out all the stops on this one.
The chorus provides a powerful declaration as Russo sings, “I’m not guilty for my mistakes. I’m not proud of what we made, I just try to mean what I say. You just watch me fade away.” Honest lyrics and raspy vocals seem to compliment eachother so well on this track. Russo explains the song saying, “It’s my favorite song I’ve ever done. It literally brings me to tears...The song literally describes someone watch you deteriorate as a human and not doing anything about it.”
