#songoftheday / #amlistening = WHITNEY FENIMORE: “STONES”

Last month I interviewed Whitney Fenimore, a former contestant of The Voice from season 13.  Her single at the time was “Find Your Love,” a sweeping, almost ethereal ballad that blows across your skin like a cool breeze on a hot day.  Her new single, “Stones,” is a veritable stomper that reminds me of Larkin Poe’s brand of alt-country, alt-country being the subgenre that most consider Whitney’s music to be.  I didn’t really hear any country in “Find Your Love,” but listening to “Stones,” I can see why people would say that.  The beats, guitars and piano remind me of country music before it turned into bubblegum pop.  However, I would still call Whitney’s music alt-pop or indie pop.  Not bubblegum pop, however.  Not that it matters what I call it.  Or what anyone calls it.  Regardless of any words a music journalist might choose to churn out, “Stones” is, well, solid as a rock.  Grade A stuff.  I hope you’re listening to it right now as you read this.  If not, hey, you’re missing out on something special.

You’re in for a real treat when her EP Battle Within drops on May 18th.
