Single Review – Cappa – Fatal

LA-based pop darling CAPPA is releasing her new single, “Fatal,” on April 2nd. “Fatal” will join singles “Colder” and “Contact High” on CAPPA’s forthcoming EP slated for release later this year. 

CAPPA’s signature combination of atmospheric production, alluring vocals, confident lyricism, and catchy hooks is on full display on “Fatal”. The song explores a tumultuous relationship that never feels like it’s on solid ground. “The other person doesn’t put you first or see your point of view and it’s always causing chaos,” CAPPA elaborates.

Since her 2015 breakout, “Hush,” which premiered on SPIN and was later featured in a Victoria Secret ad, CAPPA has released two EPs – ‘CAPPA‘ & ‘Queen of Hearts‘ – and a steady stream of effervescent singles. Over the years, CAPPA has been championed by key tastemakers like NYLON, Glamour, Entertainment Weekly, and Billboard. Her songs can also be heard on hit TV shows like Riverdale, Selling Sunset, and Siesta Keys, as well as in commercials for Lady Gaga’s HAUS Laboratories and Under Armour. 

Originally hailing from Philadelphia, CAPPA first landed in Nashville and quickly became synonymous with the emerging pop scene there. Buoyed by her success in Nashville, CAPPA made the leap to Los Angeles a few years back and has continued to expand her resume as an artist, songwriter, and vocalist. Well-known for her hypnotic vocal stylings, CAPPA has featured on tracks for major electronic acts like SNBRN, Dirty Audio Justin Caruso, and TELYKast, and curated an exclusive vocal sample pack for SPLICE.

Cappa’s latest track, ‘Fatal’ is just an expert in how confident someone can be when their music is amazing. The lyrics of the track that focus on a relationship is laid bare and exposes herself to share something which you absorb into your soul. It’s a in depth view into the mind of an artist we want to hear more from.

Rating: 5/5.

Single Review – Cappa – Colder

CAPPA, aka Carla Cappa, is a singer/songwriter with a knack for creating carefree yet clever pop gems. With her deadly combination of atmospheric production, alluring vocals, confident lyricism, and catchy hooks, it’s no wonder that CAPPA has become a blog darling over the years. 

Raised on the Philadelphia outskirts by a singer-songwriter mother, CAPPA’s youth was soundtracked by pop greats like Hall & Oates and Carly Simon, the latter of which she also happens to be named after. She picked up guitar at the age of 7 and started to write songs as a form of journaling, something which she has carried into her songwriting process today. 

After graduating high school, CAPPA moved down to Nashville to continue to hone her craft. Inspired by the iconic pop sounds of the early 2000s, the grit of the pop-punk scene she grew up on, and the emerging dance music scene, CAPPA’s unique sound quickly took the Nashville pop scene by storm. After releasing music under a few different monikers, she debuted the CAPPA project in 2015 with her first single, “Hush,” with a premiere on SPIN. She followed up her initial success with the release of her self-titled EP and a viral rendition of TLC’s “No Scrubs” that has amassed over 9M+ streams to date. In 2016 she released her sophomore EP, Queen of Hearts, which was produced by Dylan Bauld (Halsey, Misterwives, Liam Payne). Queen of Hearts landed CAPPA critical acclaim from Entertainment Weekly and Billboard, solidifying her as a fresh new artist to watch. In 2018, buoyed by her success in Nashville, CAPPA made the leap to the pop music utopia of Los Angeles. 

While continuing her own steady stream of single releases, CAPPA has also become a sought after vocalist, featuring on tracks for major electronic acts like SNBRN, Justin Caruso, and TELYKast. In 2019, her distinctively hypnotic cadence landed her a deal with SPLICE to create an exclusive sample pack. Her refreshing pop sound has also led to a huge range of syncs, with her singles having been featured in ads for Victoria Secret and Lady Gaga’s HAUS Laboratories, and in TV shows like Selling Sunset, Riverdale, and Siesta Keys, just to name a few. 

With an arsenal of new original pop gems, CAPPA is now gearing up to release a new EP. Pushing through the various struggles of being an independent artist, she has created a well-rounded record full of fun yet heartfelt tracks that are sure to dazzle fans both new and old.

Set to the wonderful beat and unusual tempo, Cappa constructs a fantastic and emotionally devistating single in ‘Colder’, a track which shows real growth on the artists front where she gives birth to something that we can jam to dance to while in lockdown all the while in lockdown, when this whole chapter is over, can hear where it’ll be truly appreciated in time.
