It's been a bit since we last heard from Fiona Silver. The New York City-based singer/songwriter has been busy cobbling together her debut album, which will be released soon. For now, a gritty new song will have to suffice. "Smoking Gun" teeters the line between moody and melodic, with elements of garage rock and vintage pop serving as the perfect foil as she sings about getting revenge on a former lover.
"'Smoking Gun' is a cinematic journey into the mind of a scorned woman driving through the desert to kill her lover," Silver says. "It starts with an eerie whistle from afar and dives right into a heavy, visceral feeling; the grips of insanity. "Foot on the pedal, wind in my hair, backseat lover, did you think I don't care?
"In the verses it dips down from the physical feeling of rage into the mental monologue that rises back up with electricity, as if your skin is on fire. It is the push and pull of a tortured mind."
Fiona Silver's Little Thunder will be out soon.
