Amaya‘s latest single and video Sleep Alone is deeply personal and beautifully moving. It’s a style now synonymous with the Swedish songstresses. Her self-reflective prism, first heard in tracks such as Trust Issues and more recently Goodbye, are soulful testaments – touching and emotional.
Her new single thrills with scale, drama, and harmonic depth due to a full string orchestra accompaniment.* However, it is Amaya whose soft, gentle raspy vocals hold centre stage and build to a climatic and goosebump-inducing height.
Her story is compelling and relatable as she looks back on the aftermath of a relationship and faces a new reality of loneliness.
Recorded at the legendary Baggpipe studios in Stockholm (old ABBEY studios), Sleep Alone is released with a sullen-shot video by Max Petač (see top video), yet still looks as exceptional as this track sounds.
After lockdown the world stages await Amaya.
