Alex Amor releases her debut EP ‘Love Language’, independently via the Believe label.
Available to download or stream, the EP contains, aside from its title track, previous singles ‘Prove Me Right,’ ‘The Part With Each Other’, and ‘Motion’, plus new track ‘So Far’.
The five tracks – produced by the Glaswegian musician alongside Karma Kid – is intended to document the progression of a relationship, as Amor explains: “‘Love Language’ is a reference to Gary Chapman’s book ‘The Five Love Languages’ which expands on the 5 different ways humans show affection in a relationship.
“The title track is about a relationship that fails to align in that way. Opposites can sometimes attract but in this case, they repel. I am obsessed with paradox and juxtaposition – calm and chaos, dark and light, serious and playful.”
Haling from Glasgow’s suburbs and growing up singing in choirs, Amor relocated alone to London in 2019, initially couch surfing and working in bars. However, at the end of her first year in the city, she had written the songs which would eventually become the ‘Love Language’ EP.
The 23-year-old singer-songwriter continues: “This EP shows both sides of the coin for me too: my cynicism for love and also succumbing to it despite being cautious to begin with.It also reflects a recent time of my life where I am a woman struggling for autonomy. I’m moving into adulthood and I’m desperately trying to make sense of its complexities.
“Though there’s no happy resolve at the end of the EP, I feel more self-assured than ever, more me than I’ve ever been. Naturally evolving, my ethos remains the same: to stay true to my intuition and try my best every day.
“The lyrics are conversational for a reason: I am speaking directly to people from the heart. There’s an overarching theme of positivity in my music, the idea that it’s okay if things aren’t okay but there’s always hope that things will get better.”
Alex Amor was also recently announced in the first 50 acts set to play The Great Escape Festival 2021.
