The new single “Just Fine” from the rising star is devilishly dark – combining pounding pop beats with ominous electronics to portray Amava’s “internal struggle”. “This song is my ode to the times where I’m wearing my brave face, and even in all the moments of fun and glitter, I feel this standstill of uncertainty and instability in my life”, she explains.
Amava shares about the new single, “To me, it’s about the juxtaposition between having the time of my life and being internally squandering about how I don’t know where I’m going or how I’d rather be asleep. The song is a way I can process my messed up emotions into a waveform of what I’m feeling and give the chance for other people to relate to it as well.”
The rising star draws inspiration from pop icons such as Charli XCX, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lorde as well as her small town’s folk music scene to create a rich tapestry of her own. Her music is a beautiful expression of the human condition, detailing love, grief, desire, and loneliness into her expansive soundscapes. “Music is the one place I could always go that was mine and only mine, my safe place, and my home.”
Amava always found herself not quite fitting in. Having put on a façade of being an extrovert throughout high school, her quiet, timid nature meant she struggled to fully express herself throughout her teenage years. Instead, she focused on learning to tell the stories she collected – transforming anecdotes into blissful musical moments.
