Popforward: Amanda Mair
I was rather excited to learn that Swedish indie-pop label Labrador just signed a new female act, and they did not disappoint. The 16-year-old Amanda Mair possesses a voice mature beyond her years. My first thought was that Stuart Murdoch (Belle & Sebastian frontman) would kill to get her on his God Help The Girl project, as her voice is right up his street. She also uncannily looks like the splitting image of Anna Paquin. Mair’s debut digital single, the piano-led “House”, is a lovely taste of what’s to come. I do hope it won’t take her too long to record the album, because I’d really like to hear more from her.
