Amanda Ardai‘s latest single, Din Religion, is a refreshing burst of energy that all radiates from her captivating vocals.
Sung in her native Swedish, the song transcends language barriers, resonating with listeners from all backgrounds. Her voice exudes energy that ignites the soul. With its catchy chorus and melodious tunes, it’s the right companion for a road trip, all while carrying deep and thought-provoking lyrics written by Joakim Tidermark.
According to Amanda herself, Din Religion is a chance to bring out her inner “kristi brud” (Christ bride), but it can also be seen as a love song with religion as a metaphor.
The song’s spirited strings, expertly played by Amanda, draw inspiration from Salem Al Fakir‘s early music, hinting at the nostalgia of late ’90s Swedish classics like Lisa Nilsson and Orup. There’s also a playful nod to “Dina ögon‘s” “tombola 94” with its charming backing vocal arrangement.
We’ve been avidly following Amanda since her debut, and she never fails to leave us in awe. Swedish radio, it’s high time the country woke up to the sensation that is Amanda Ardai.
