Fonda ~ Better Days EP (Fonda Music, Inc., 2011)

It's been almost 10 years that I'd heard about Fonda. A friend sent me their first ep 'Music for Begginers', from 1998 and I had a blast listening to it. Then years past... and imagine my surprise and delight when David sent me an email last week talking about their new release.
It's been 8 years since Fonda's latest release.The once band now is the couple/duo David Klotz and Emily Cook. Both work on the entertainment industry and have successful careers: David is the music editor for the TV hit 'Glee' and Emily is a screenwriter and among her works are 'Gnomeo and Juliet' and 'Ratatouille'.
Fonda is the unique combination of shoegaze, brit pop, 60's pop, layers of sound and boy-girl singing. And "Better Days", their new ep, is somehow a pretty evolution from the 8 years that passed without new music from them. It's bright, tight and perfect to be listened in the middle of the day, surrounded by the sun and potent speakers/headphones.

In time, here's 'Better Days EP' for your listening pleasure... You can also download the title track here. The EP will be out on June, 6.
