At the top of every new year, blogs, fans, and curators alike begin to put together their picks for the artists to blow in the coming 365 days. Personally, considering the momentum that he’s garnered just in the past few months, I have a feeling that TyFontaine is a name who certainly shouldn’t be left out of this conversation. Following the recent release of his virtual boy EP, Fontaine is back today to double down on such with a brand new single, “Floating.”
Produced by none other than Lil Tecca — whose production prowess certainly shouldn’t be overlooked — “Floating” is the kind of left-of-center, melody-driven release that might just stick in 2020. Running just under a minute and a half, the song caters to current listening trends in a structural sense, while the inventive scramble of flows from Fontaine wastes no time in commanding attention and keeping it. If there’s one song to convince fans of the budding talent’s colorful world of sound, “Floating” just might be it.
Stream the new single below, and be sure to revisit the virtual boy EP to hear Fontaine’s strong run of releases heading into the new year. 2020 might just be the year for Internet Money’s own.
