Venom is the name of Veronica Fusaro's new single, a confident and gripping soundtrack to a story of poison and spite.
The song’s instrumentation provides a dark background for the haunting and powerful presence of this singer and songwriter from Switzerland.
Jazzy-smooth synth-sounds pulsate throughout the song like warm blood. Fleeting female voices appear like a ghost choir, contrasting with Veronica Fusaro's passionate multi-layered singing and surprising musical ornaments create tension and dynamism.
The strength of the music lies in its pared-back nature, giving centre-stage to Fusaro’s strong exciting voice, which is exactly what makes it so special. And all this with a rhythmic precision which reveals this strong Swiss newcomer’s fascination with hip hop and dub beats. She has the courage to borrow gently from the sound that has made artists such as The Weeknd and Drake into superstars, but without betraying her own roots.
Freshness and rawness give Venom its strength, delivering a captivating sound, drawing the listener into its spell, bewitching and entrancing. Seductive? Yes! But watch out: sometimes seduction can be poison, a terrible and risky thing of beauty.
In 2016 Veronica Fusaro released her self-produced EP, Lost In Thought, and surprised the Swiss music industry by winning the "Demo of the Year" at the M4Music-Festival.
She was then awarded "Best Talent" by the national radio station SRF3 and was nominated for a Swiss Music Award in 2017.
The following summer Veronica presented her music at various festivals and performed at international conferences such as Musexpo in Los Angeles and Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg.
Her second EP, Ice Cold, was released on February 9 2018. With the single Better If I Go, the 21-year-old artist performed at the Swiss Music Awards at the Hallenstadion in Zurich, was invited to the Winter Olympics in Pyeong Chang and recently played showcases at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Music Matters Singapore and Reeperbahnfestival.
Veronica Fusaro is currently on tour and released new music on October 19 with the single, Venom.
