Cali Rodi released an empowered new pop anthem on August 6th, God Save The Queen. She is emerging as a bright young pop star but there is nothing vapid or simplistic about her music. With this in mind, The Fountain caught up with Cali to discuss the track and her favourite music venue.

TF: You have a new single coming out, what do you expect the reception to God Save The Queen to be like?

Yes! I definitely have a nervous excitement when it comes to releasing music. You never know how people are going to react, but I feel like God Save The Queen is the perfect mix of a fresh perspective lyrically and elements of nostalgia sonically that will make listeners automatically feel something when they hit play. 

TF: How would you sum the single up in one sentence?

There is strength in admitting you need a little help sometimes. 

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?

I feel like everything is constantly changing with the uncertainty of COVID19. With that being said, I have been writing songs for my debut EP now for 4 years, so I’m more than ready to finally put out more music this year! I’ll be releasing a few singles before my album comes out. I’m also hoping before the end of the year I’ll be able to hug my friends!

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live and where is the next place you look most forward to gigging? 

I love playing local venues in Los Angeles! Hotel Cafe has a big piece of my heart and every time I step on that stage I’m reminded of so many artists who got their start there. Fingers crossed live music resurrects soon, but until then I’ll keep coming at you through a phone screen!
