TUNE AMA LOU - TBC
RELEASES DEBUT SINGLE ‘ TBC’
The 18 year old Singer/Songwriter AMA LOU has officially arrived and is set to unleash her debut single ‘TBC’ which was recently released on October 10th 2016 via all major digital platforms. She resides in north London, which is an area that is certainly not foreign to home grown talent with fellow north Londoners Skepta, Little Simz, Wretch 32 taking the music industry by storm.
The British teen cites her experiences, interests and relationships as major influences on her musical craft and style — a style that holds a strong sense of self and expresses her own type of femininity within androgyny.
Produced by Exmoor Emperor and written by Ama,‘TBC’ is complete musical bliss, a deep sensual, eclectic number with a tinge of R&B masterfully seamed together. Accompanied by a thick, driving bass line coupled with her haunting and poignant story-telling lyrics.
Ama Lou describes ‘TBC’ as being about current events and historical issues experienced by the minorities of the world. The song alludes to the BLM movement and references mass murder and annihilation of Black and Brown America in the early 20th century. I write both from primary and observatory points of view. The verses portray a sense of group and togetherness, standing together and fighting against archaic societal rules opposed by modern feminism and the millennial generation. The pre chorus references the infamous last words “I can’t breath,” uttered by Eric Garner, the Staten Island, New Yorker choked to death by police in July 2014. The chorus, which is about the views of those trying to change their environments for the better in “Should it be I’ve lost my way,” is a kind of mockery of the media’s perpetuated projected propaganda that labels activism “crazy”; because they have lost their way and place in society, they need to make noise and be heard.
With addictive hooks and a unique style, be sure to keep a close eye on the newest talent from the UK
