Amela releases “DNM”
Australian singer Amela has just released her new single, “DNM”, produced by Josh Beatie and is her second release of 2020, the follow up to “I’m Alright”. “DNM” is an electro-pop song that will have you hooked from the start and is another addition to the young singer/songwriter ever expanding discography, which began back in 2013 with her debut, “Not Enough Honey”.
Amela followed this with a string of tunes culminating with her debut album, “Somewhere In Between”, in 2017. Since then she has released the tracks “Slow Motion” and “Blame” last year, both of which were well received. Amela began writing and playing instruments at the age of 9 and by the age of 16, went to LA to record her first EP. Born in Bosnia, Amela now calls the the GOld Coast of Australia home and a base to work from.
Amela told us recently about the inspiration for “DNM”: “The song was basically created in our bedroom. Josh Beattie, my partner and I live on an acreage out in the hinterlands of the Gold Coast and for the past 6 months we’ve been building ateaching/songwriting space and recording studio. So while the studio was getting built, we did all of our music production in the bedroom! The vocals were recorded at QSounds in Burleigh, Gold Coast by Maddy Breen and the rest of the songs’ arrangement was created by Josh Beattie. Josh and I split the arrangement choices with reference to Swedish pop-artist ALMA and The Chainsmokers. I wanted to have those fat, simple synths in the break-down”.
