Gina Mobilio's "Razor Behavior"

Gina Mobilio's "Razor Behavior"

I first came across Gina Mobilio's music at her debut album release at The Side Walk cafe a couple of weeks ago during the Anti folk festival. The song "Razor Behavior," which is also the title of the album, is what first captivated me - a morose song about the consequences of self-destruction and personal liberation, enough to make Sylvia Plath smile from her grave. The New Jersey artist grew up listening to oldies stations, and was obsessed with doo wop - and it shows. The rest of the album isn't as hard-hitting and melancholic as Razor Behavior, but it’s real, and at times funny, and honest; her showtune-esque feel is unique in an era of mass-indie rock and EDM-inspired mainstream music, and her sound is reminiscent of a Broadway performer gone completely rogue. Gina's stage presence is equally as captivating, engaging the audience with quirky and somewhat off putting lyrics, accompanied by a piano, and at one point a saxophone (her album features the likes of Ben Pagano, Charles Mansfield, and Julian Samal). In an interview with the artist, we found out that the album is influenced from a tumultuous musician relationship gone wrong, a somewhat quasi response letter in Taylor Swift fashion. -Kristyn Potter
