One Track Mind: The Initiative’s Fortunato Isgro, “Every Little Thing” (2014)

Plug in, click on, tune in, and turn on! What we have here is a great video of an equally great song from the Initiative, an Australian-based band whose self-titled debut album has deservedly been collecting rave responses throughout the world.

Parked in front of the microphone is Fortunato Isgro, who along with the band delivers a star-studded performance, crackling with energy and soul.

A people-pleasing pop nugget all the way, “Every Little Thing” swings and rings with dapper hooks, bright and bubbly vocals and positive and loving vibes by the gallon. Positioned in a similar musical zone as both the early Beatles and the Bobby Fuller Four, but costumed in updated regalia, “Every Little Thing” is a modern day classic!
