New Music Video: So Cold – Amun

2018, the year of humans being unapologetically themselves whilst the theme of culture takes over all parts of the globe, and from it all, arises a dream from a young, London raised soul.

22-year-old British-Somali singer/songwriter AMUN unleashes the video for her latest single ‘So Cold’ which made its debut via Link Up TV to rapturous comments. Courtesy of the flawless vocals, chic imagery and hazy aura, her plight to share her music in order to inspire is clearly having an effect.

Taken from her impending EP release ‘I Like To Sing’, AMUN strives to be ‘free and creative on a beat’ and completes her new selection of tracks showing a variety of flows, not only with her voice, but lyrically too. Each track portrays the lessons, experiences & childhood tales that many can relate to. ‘So Cold’ specifically depicts revenge, “It is the thoughts of someone who was treated less than their worth, as well as the wrath that comes with not appreciating people”, says AMUN describing her work.

Partnering with Perpetuity Music for the release of the EP, who have been responsible for several acts that are now well established in the UK Urban scene, AMUN steps into the spotlight surrounded by an experienced and understanding team that aim to nurture and highlight her incredible talent the world.

LINE MARI released her latest single, Haters, which displays the Norwegian newcomer  laying her gorgeously wispy vocals over brooding and heartfelt pianos before erupting into a soaring chorus to a backdrop of tropical-tinged synths.

Line was born in Tromsø, also living for some time in Svalbard, one of the most Northerly inhabited places in the world. As a child, she grew up regularly witnessing the beauty of the Northern Lights, as well as once having a close encounter with a polar bear whilst at Kindergarten.

A highly versatile musician, Line not only sings and writes her own music, she also plays a number of instruments including guitar, piano and harmonica (she is currently also learning to play the fiddle). She has a keen interest in vintage music and vintage guitars and owns several custom-made guitars and her own custom-made pedal-board.

Haters and previous single Crush are set to appear on Line’s upcoming album, which fans can grab hold of this month. The album was recorded at the legendary Abbey Roads studio, recorded with major producer Rob Cass and electronica producer Pearse MacIntyre.

So here’s some words of encouragement; have a listen to Haters.
