FRESH TRACKS A LOOK AT LOVE, LOSS AND DEATH FOR SINGER-SONGWRITER
LOCAL singer-songwriter Amanda Canzurlo – also known as Bloom – has had a second wind of sorts.
She has performed for a decade under the stage name Amanda, but a shift from producing Kelly Clarkson-style pop-rock to a new ambient vibe meant the old guise did not fit her fresh style.
Bloom chatted excitedly to the Gazette before jetting off to Melbourne last week for a short tour before the launch of her EP in late July.
She said her fresh handful of tracks, co-written with producer Rob Agostini, were stories of her late 20s and a look at love, loss and death.
“They’re all autobiographical stories that I’m sure people can relate to,” she said.
The Bibra Lake singer began writing music for the EP 12 months ago but said her aim for perfection slowed the production process.
“I began writing seriously in June last year,” she said.
“I’m very fussy. I just kept tweaking and tweaking, but eventually you just have to draw the line.”
Momentum has been building in her work for some time, resulting in a collaboration with producer Oen Bearen on the dance track LetitGo.
The song is similar to a Zedd-produced track, with Bloom coming in over powerful beats to give the song and extra kick.
The song was given a 9/10 rating by Beatsmedia.
Bloom’s vocals get total freedom on her selftitled EP, with includes upbeat track Ghost and a Lana Del Ray-style 100Nightmares hinting that great things could be on the horizon.
Bloom is launching her EP in July.
