The Mercurial Songwriter Has been Working with Producer Tim Larcombe
Suffolk-based songwriter Amy Milner returned towards the end of 2019 with some of the most coherent, electronic-pop we’ve heard in a long time. Her previous work has, rightly so, been supported by Apple Music & Spotify, as well as Zane Lowe and Elton John on their respective radio shows.
A music-obsessive from a young age, Amy first started writing and performing at school plays long before an artist career was a possibility. Later, she found a home for her music with Brixton-based label Aesop, who released her first artist outings. She soon found an effective production partner in Brighton-based producer Tim Larcombe (Lana Del-Rey/ Halsey)
The result of a lot of hard work, her new EP ‘Plans’ beautifully illustrates all the elements of Amy’s distinctive sound. There’s moments of anthemic pop, as well as an outstanding production standard and plenty of warm analogue synth goodness. On the new release Amy states:
“It’s easy to get stuck in our ways and end up dragging our heels, ticking boxes and not giving much thought to the things that truly make us happy. “Plans” is an expression of reassessment and hope upon meeting someone who puts the heart back into living, opens your eyes to things you didn’t realise mattered so much. The song brings together two people who are largely opposite in character, making the pull of each to the other quite unexpected. No matter how successful you could become in your job, or skillful you might be in your discipline, the key to true contentment is surely to love, be loved and spread happiness by embracing your own? “Plans” is the title track of my new self-released EP, a collection of songs that pivot on a theme of positivity through difficulty/complication (to which the counterpart will be released later this year). It is a playful number, which builds over a catchy guitar loop, making use of organic instruments and interlocking vocal lines which add excitement and illustrate the joyful sentiment at the song’s core.”
