amanda jerlov is a rising superstar from Sweden whose retro-inspired dance tunes are notable for their catchiness and intricate soundscapes. Her new single, thinking bout you, has the ability to lighten up your week. Fun melodies, an entrancing bass, and a kick-driven chorus make the production inviting. Details like the background vocal at 0:32 bring additional depth. I can’t think of another artist right now who merges disco and pop so masterfully as amanda.
The lyrics to thinking bout you aren’t that happy. In fact, their tone can be quite moody. amanda explains: ”This song tells the story about how my lack of patience too often leads to me making impulsive decisions, that I in hindsight tend to regret. In this particular case, it’s about ending a relationship a little too fast and a little too easily, to then weeks later start questioning whether it was the right decision or not.”
thinking bout you seems like a hit to me. I’m curious what amanda will do next. She succeeds creatively with every step she takes. Check out the audio below!
