Talented Hackney based R’n’B singer Amahla is set to release her next single ‘Reason’ which boasts distinctive vocals, expressive harmonies and empowering piano chords that play alongside groove-rich drum breaks. Released on the 10th of August, “Reason” is the next R’n’B track that will get you off your seat.
Raised in a Caribbean household in Hackney, Amahla’s upbringing was filled with literature and classic vinyl records which led her to study Anthropology at university. This influenced Amahla’s activism and songwriting which can be heard throughout her music. Amahla wrote Reasons in the wake of the Roe Vs Wade case being overturned, she writes “Reason” was written to the current backdrop of the Roe Vs Wade case being overturned – whenever women are emotional we’re deemed hysterical, even when our individual and reproductive rights are up for debate. Now marginalised groups are having to fight harder to be believed. I wrote Reason with my producer Tev’n. We wanted to write a song that was self-affirming, that song you sing at the top of your lungs to the person who’s wronged you and in that feel power.”
Reason is out now, you can catch Amahla on the 10th of October at the Omeara.
