Amoreena's new single "Blind Devotion" is a beautiful and poetic call to the deities of hopeless romanticism.
With a laid-back vocal melody and falsetto chorus that is sure to charm listeners, she shares a story of love so blindly strong there's no telling who will get hurt in the end.
Amoreena is an up-and-coming artist who is dubbing her genre "Drama-pop." This new genre is a mix of sounds and influences reminiscent of pop artists Rina Sawayama, Marina (and the Diamonds), The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, and Charli XCX with 80’s Femme Diva’s Pat Benatar, Bonnie Tyler, and Kate Bush.
What drives the Drama-pop aesthetic is her focus on lyrical clarity, developed from her love of Emily Dickinson and poets of old. Amoreena embellishes her stories with dramatic poetry and brings them to life with pop melodies, a sultry strong vocal, and production that ignites something new and exciting to fantasize within.
If you're looking for a new artist to fall in love with, look no further than Amoreena. Her "Blind Devotion" is sure to charm and enchant you.
Welcome to BuzzMusic, Amoreena. We are so excited to have a pioneer of a new genre with us. What inspired you to own your unique perspective on music?
Thank you so much; I’m so glad to be speaking with BuzzMusic again! My perspective on music, I believe, has been created from collaboration and inspiration. When I look back at artists like Kate Bush, who is gaining more popularity than ever now, or the likes of Lady Gaga, who have so flawlessly mixed art, fashion, and pop to make this beautiful word - I’ve thought about how I want my music to be perceived and listened to, and I believe I write lyrics in a very dramatic sense - like poets of old. And what better way to be perceived than dramatic? With all of the pieces put together, each song I’ve created feels like an entire show in itself.
It is obvious Blind Devotion came from the heart. Will you share with us the situation and your experience that inspired you?
Blind Devotion was really born out of the idea of blind faith in your relationship and love for someone. Someone you would give anything for, especially in the early stages of your relationship, the so-called “honeymoon phase.” As I was trying to get out of a writing slump, I decided to use this song as more of a therapy session - I don’t typically write happy love songs often. Hence, it was a good exercise for me lyrically and instrumentally to do.
Where do you envision your music career will carry you? We are excited to be along for the ride.
I just want to make people smile and for my music to be on their healing journeys just as it has helped to heal me by creating it.
As an artist, how do you think your experiences growing up have shaped your music?
Ooo, this is such a great question. I think my experiences growing up shaped my music by me needing to find an outlet for the creativity I was entirely sure how to handle. From a young age, I was enthralled with all different mediums of art - like painting, drawing, even acting, and dancing. Music is always what I would come back to to help express the emotions I didn’t quite understand, even from a young age. Then I began to find my voice through children's choir - and it’s been a wild ride ever since!
What's next for you?
I’m looking to begin finishing up this album and also start rounding out the next one. I’ve started writing new pieces that don’t necessarily go with the storyline of this album, so I’ve started to sketch out where I want the next few pieces to pan out release wise in the future.
I also will be releasing music with Streetlight Satin, a band that Chris Lantry of BootKnife and I have created - I’m really excited to be doing more rock type music with that band as well.
