CMU Approved

Approved: Amanda Mair

Amanda Mair

Amanda Mair released her debut album in 2012 to much pointing and saying ‘this is good’. Then, so the story goes, she just disappeared. Which isn’t strictly true because, well, it’s just not true. She toured, she recorded, she released an EP with her band Vo PAM. But the point is, she is now properly back, and has wiped any trace of her past history from SoundCloud and YouTube in celebration.

History is unimportant though. Let’s live in the now, people. And the now is ‘Wednesday’. Yes, I know Wednesday was yesterday, but if you’re going to get picky about things like that, you might start noticing that this track has been around for two weeks already and the whole façade of this approved song being brand new and totally ‘now’ will come crumbling down.

‘Wednesday’ – the record ‘Wednesday’ just released by the recording artist Amanda Mair – is a strong electronic ballad, which cuts a through line to but marks a step up from the naïve indie-pop sound of her debut album. It’s taken from a forthcoming EP, which is still in the works, and has a very good video, which you can watch here:
