Truth be told, I should have posted this track two days ago, when I wasn’t busy playing it on repeat. A fuller and poppier affair than her first track “House”, Amanda Mair‘s second single “Doubt” is without a doubt the type of indie Swede-pop number I adore: beautifully sung and arranged, addictive and infectious. She’s got a voice beyond her years, while still retaining traces of a wide-eyed youth on the brink of adulthood. Keep in mind, she’s only 16 years of age! With two amazing songs out of two, Amanda is raising the bar very high indeed.
The digital single is out on October 10. Be patient, the album’s slated for an early 2012 release.
More on 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.
