Premiere: Amelia Carey – ‘Happy Tears’

A bold return from the 19 year old artist...

Amelia Carey is still only 19 years old, but already her music feels remarkably self-assured.

Buoyant pop with a personal edge, the lyrics draw on her experience as a queer woman in a heteronormative environment.

Songs about love, friendship, and the bonds between the LGBT community, she balances a hyper-specific sensibility with an ability to tap into the universal.

New alt-pop burner 'Happy Tears' was written alongside Push Baby’s Jake Roche and AZTX, fusing lucid electronics with neat R&B impulses.

Blessed with a bold chorus and some snappy lyrics, 'Happy Tears' is an infectious return from the bold teenage artist.
