UK-based pop artist Amber Prothero always takes an emotionally multifaceted approach to her lyricism; the best introduction to her confessional lyrical style is her latest single, Confident.
It’s practically a 101 guide on how to exude as much confidence as you will hear in the vibrant pop hit. Prothero’s soulful RnB-tinged vocals will throw you back to the 90s era of pop. While lyrically, you can expect the same introspective grit as found in a track by Lily Allen, Kate Nash or Marina and the Diamonds. The single was created over Zoom in collaboration with the Parisian songwriter and musician Ny Aina Ramangasalama.
With her former releases, Prothero became a BBC Introducing playlist staple; we are sure that Confident will allow her to work her way onto even more A-lists.
Confident released on June 18th; it is now available to stream and download on all major platforms via this link.
Jazzy, chilled and mellow, and kicking off with a beautifully laid-back saxophone solo over staccato picked guitars before Prothero’s smoky vocal arrives in force, ‘Superpowers’ is the perfect showcase for Prothero’s soaring, effortless talent. There’s hints of Norah Jones, Sara Bareilles, and even old-school chanteuses like Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, or Billie Holiday in 23-year-old Prothero’s delivery, but there’s modernity too – maybe a hint of chilled Christina Aguilera or Gwen Stefani in the poppiness that sits on top of the jazz progressions, with a little nod to contemporary R&B and dubstep, too.
Sexy, sultry, and sassy overall ‘Superpowers’ is a perfect blend of Prothero’s vocal prowess, songwriting and musicianship, and a stunning mix of classic smoky jazz and modern pop.
Newah & Amber Prothero found the perfect balance between sensuality, soul and jazz-laden ecstasy in their new electro jazz pop hit “Let It Burn”.
The UK-based duo brought a brand-new meaning to the term let it burn. They tear the narrative away from arson and offer inspiration through their lyrics which invite you to embrace the fire within. So, if you’ve been feeling a little stagnant lately, Let it Burn is the perfect aural warmer. It brings Electro Jazz into the mainstream while never compromising on the earworm accessibility.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who will be hoping that there will be more to come from the already iconic duo. They’re firmly affixed to our radar.
