Gabriela has one of the most powerful voices around. “Most Wanted” mixes modern pop-punk and 80s glam rock, and it blows over it like a summer storm.
LOS ANGELES, California, USA, Oct. 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you really want to put on a show, you can’t be afraid to go beyond that. Beat the drums as hard as you can, squeal the six strings, and write about big emotions in bold, colorful language. If you’re going to sing, you need to make sure everyone can hear you. This has never been a problem for Gabriela, owner of one of the most powerful voices in the business. On “Most Wanted,” her latest single, she doesn’t just hit notes — and emotional territory — that most singers could never reach. She performs with absolute confidence, tremendous skill and an unwavering belief that every bar and line is an opportunity to delight the listener.
She has a lot of experience with that. Gabriela sings with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, specialists in dramatic seasonal entertainment and purveyors of symphonic grandeur and crunch rock. To compete with this battery of strings, horns and wailing guitars, a singer must cultivate power and presence. Gabriela applies what she’s learned to her sensational solo work: songs that share the cinematic strength of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra but fit perfectly into a contemporary playlist. “Most Wanted” splits the difference between modern pop-punk and 80s glam rock, and Gabriela blows over the track like a summer storm. With each chorus and each line, she pushes harder and rises higher; expect to be out of breath at the end of the song.
To match “Most Wanted” with a video that amplifies that excitement, she turned to another glam-rock veteran whose flexibility and vision have been clearly demonstrated over the past two decades. It’s hard to say whether Nuno Bettencourt is best known as the guitarist of hard rock and glam-metal band Extreme or Rihanna’s most trusted accomplice; however, he also showed that he was a talented filmmaker. Her music video for “Most Wanted,” directed with partner Rene Regal, takes Gabriela back to the lo-tech era of garage-rock bands and brash attitude.
Everything in the clip is vintage – the musical instruments and amplifiers, the modes, the low bikes, the live presentation. Gabriela dresses the role: she has barrettes in her hair, little peach-colored sneakers, a gummy bear-shaped necklace and a t-shirt advertising Bratz dolls. She leads her suburban band through song like a budding neighborhood rock star, and her friends are there to cheer her on. Still, there’s an indication that it’s not really a glimpse of a bygone era. The street looks modern, as do the cars. The message is clear: Gabriela and the gang have chosen to highlight the best and most colorful elements of the past, and they bring them forward to invigorate the present.
