Synth City

Fancy Me Yet

Natasha Jeanne was already a major label artist with three Latin GRAMMY nominations under her belt when she decided to start from scratch and form a new band. Fancy Me Yet is the result of the singer’s about-face, a glossy synth-rock band with influences ranging from The Killers to Phoenix. With bandmates Alex Darren (guitar/vocals) and Chris Bernard (drums/sequencers) rounding out the mix, Fancy Me Yet sets to lighting a fire under your feet. On Middle Man, the bubblegum crack of the chorus sends what would be a new-wave track straight into pop-rock territory. Natasha is belter, drenching her lyrics with attitude and delivering big verbal slaps. Her best delivery is on Amusing Me”a coy, boy-girl trade-off with searing guitar stabs that nudge you until you start moving. Big, sailing choruses rule the day here (see Said It All and A Little Bit Of). If you can’t get with girly pop-rock, then step aside. Everyone else”we’ll see you on the dance floor.
