It’s a powerful, vocoder induced piece of electronica.
Fans of James Blake or lykke Li might want to pay attention to this one from Amy Milner, A Suffolk-based songwriter who’s been crafting some intensely moving electronic music.
Her previous releases have been supported by the likes of BBC Introducing, Zane Lowe, Elton John and BBC 6Music – She’s also worked with South London record label Aesop where her releases went on to achieve over one million streams on Spotify.
Her first release in 2019 was the haunting and affecting ‘Shine Off’. Premiered by Complex UK and supported by a number of key tastemaker blogs and playlists, it’s a track that showcased the depth of Amy’s writing ability and the undeniable production skills of Tim Larcombe. The new single ‘A Little More’, is a stunning composition that builds around Amy’s vocal. Making exquisite use of modern vocal effects, it’s a track that’s rich in emotion and conveys a frailty in its lyrics building to an epic piece of emotional electronica.
“No matter how adept we might be at putting on a brave face, at showing our mettle and soldiering on when the going gets tough, when the going just keeps getting tougher, when we’re blindsided, with setbacks and obstacles already piled high, that robust exterior can crumble a little to expose the inner struggle we were endeavouring to conceal. “A Little More” describes that inadvertent moment of fragility and honesty. In the song, the subject confesses they are overwhelmed, seeking solace and fortification from someone closest to them.
The scrambled vocal effect echoes the torment of the individual, while the calm and gentle piano part soothes. Stability is offered with the introduction of a sub bass, while guitar lifts the music to meet the vocal line for the initial chorus. The song evolves until its climactic second chorus, with the addition of developing beats and soaring ambient guitar.”
