Australian songwriter and producer Amanda Merdzan brings her own version of atmospheric electronic pop on her debut mini-album, “Commands”.
The record apparently took shape when Amanda was moving from her homeland to London last year. Listening to the five tracks comprising the EP – “dark electro pop”, as she calls it – it’s quite hard to believe that her first instrument was the guitar. And when she started exploring music, punk and grunge were her main focus.
Now she would rather mention Fever Ray, Bat For Lashes or Anna Of The North as her inspirations. And fans of these self-made female talents should check out “Commands” in the first place. While you can already stream the EP on Soundcloud, here’s our favourite track, a slow-burning modern ballad called “Glow”.
