FRESH from playing her debut show at AMPLIFI in Edinburgh’s Queen Hall last night, AMUNDA has unveiled a new slice of left-field pop called ‘Isn’t This What You Want?’.
Much like previous track ‘Did You Get That?’, the new track is brimming with a feeling of confidence and catharsis. A moment of introspection, it finds her reflecting on her mental health and barging past denial – fuelled by the desire to face her feelings and start afresh. Set against a bass-heavy backdrop filled with malleable grooves, the sparse yet infectious instrumental sets the tone for her personal revelations.
She said “I was coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t exactly okay and my mental health was kind of suffering. This song is me realising and admitting that I wasn’t okay and that I needed to do something about it. The chorus refers to breaking yourself open and really going in and doing that work, and having to face all of these feelings, thoughts and emotions. As if to say ‘Isn’t this what you want?’ – this is what it takes and you have to go through it to get to the other side of it.”
Tune in below.
