Glaswegian indie-pop rising star Alex Amor unleashes latest single ‘Bad Tattoo’ today, in collaboration with Manchester outfit The Deep Blue.
Striking a balance between soaring indie-pop and mellow, dreamlike alt-pop, the track sports delicately rich vocals from Amor, underpinned by a shimmering guitar refrain and serene lap steel swells. Lyrically we see a candid reflection upon the aftermath of a relationship turned sour. Amor comments:
“I find it bizarre how it’s much easier to forget the good times but impossible to forget the bad times. It seems that our worst memories are stored somewhere deep inside of us and as much as I wanted to erase this person from my head, they persisted on my skin like a bad tattoo. Like one of those drunken tattoos you get in Ibiza at 3am and regret for the rest of your life.”
This latest release marks the announcement of her upcoming EP ‘The Art Of Letting Go’, due to drop on 14th October via Young Poet. Featuring five tracks, including ‘Bad Tattoo’ and sultry single ‘Colour Me’, the EP draws upon musical and aesthetic influences spanning the likes of Billie Marten, Phoebe Bridgers and Olivia Dean.
“It’s about getting out of your own way, choosing what’s best for ourselves and surrendering to the moment, taking each day as it comes. My intention for this project is to help people feel uplifted, more at ease and inspire them to find their own ways of letting go.”
