Amela is the epitome of individuality while advocating it in her hook-decorated pop hit, Who You Are

With ample resonance to the structure of Lorde’s hit, Royal, there is no denying that Amela’s latest single, Who You Are, has the earworm factor nestled into the contemporary production.

Beyond the catchy pop vocal hooks, there’s a sticky-sweet celebration of autonomous freedom around the feisty and moody electro instrumentals that give the track enough of an edge to ensure it etches itself into your synapses and demands repeat attention.

There’s nothing more irritating than pop artists that encourage individuality while presenting themselves as fresh from the cookie-cutter stars. With Amela, she leads by infectiously quirky example. The Australian singer-songwriter has blown up across her home continent, but clearly, her sound carries all of the hallmarks of an internationally successful artist. We can’t wait to see her climb the charts.

Who You Are will officially release on July 8th. You can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud or Spotify.

Gold Coast singer Amela hits all the right notes on her ‘DNM’

Australian alt-pop singer-songwriter Amela hits all the right notes on her brand new song called ‘DNM‘.

With a glossy start, the sultry vocals soon flow into place to make beautiful pop music. The production is tight like a tiger and the claws come out when you scratch deep into the song. I feel like this song relates to millions around the world right now. That human touch and real chat energy is so low right now as the world digs itself out of this mess of a year.

The beat is scrumptious here and the vibe is a party starter. The house style with the fantastic glossy vocals adds a wild twist to the alt-pop genre, Amela sings from the heart and the results are so lovely for the soul.

DNM is really about a yearning to talk to someone about all the things on your mind.. to go deep and within. I hope that y’all have someone you can talk to about all the things on your mind.” This is a such a great message and you can tell that this is a genuine musician, one that cares about others.

Amela slides into our heart with the brilliantly constructed ‘DNM‘ and this young Gold Coast artist is swimming nicely through the waves and gets a few barrels here. This is a great song, full of love and heart which is perfect for 2020.
