Claude Fontaine - "Cry for Another"

"Cry for Another" is Claude Fontaine's debut single, and while it isn't a style we normally cover here at If It's Too Loud..., we like it enough to make sure to pass it on to you. Recorded in Chet Baker's Hollywood studio, "Cry for Another" is a love letter and tribute to classic reggae and Brazilian music, and musically sounds like Trojan and Treasure Isle records. Fontaine's voice has this smooth, lush quality that reminds me more of a jazz crooner's whisper than reggae. This makes for a great pairing of styles as the song doesn't quite land in reggae or jazz fully. Fontaine says about the song:  “‘Cry For Another’ is about the feeling when someone is slipping through your fingers, and even though you know that person may not be right, you're still pining for more. Possibly to remind yourself of why they're wrong for you, or perhaps to remember what you're going to miss.”

You can watch the video for "Cry for Another" below. Claude Fontaine's debut album will be released on Innovative Leisure later this year. For more on Claude Fontaine, be sure to check out her Facebook.
