One of the island’s female artists, Claudia Faniello has recently released a new single titled ‘Fallin’, which is penned by herself in collaboration with WickedandLoud studios. This song sees Claudia experiment into a new musical genre, based mainly on modern sounds and a catchy riff throughout the chorus. Claudia commented “I’m thrilled to release ‘Fallin’ because it is another tune which is nothing like I’ve done in the past and it talks about a situation that everyone can relate to. I have taken my time to concentrate on this tune; I want to tell stories through my music. This is a taste of what I’ve been working on and evolving into.”
