Dec. 7, 2016: Names “Seasons Change” Seattle Song of the Week


From “Our Seattle Song of the Week is La Fonda’s first single “Seasons Change” off their debut EP Good Love. The song is laced with surf rock guitars and indie dream pop vocals while the lyrics tell the story of love lost over an upbeat melody. Veronica and Valerie Topacio beautifully harmonize their vocals over lively drum beats and bright keys as every instrument comes together to create an indie-funk tune. From this track alone, you can tell that each member from the six piece band brings a vital sound that allows them to produce such fun, catchy music.”
