Amanda Tenfjord, Evangelia - AMAN (Radio Date: 23-09-2022)
Greek/Norwegian artist Amanda Tenfjord today releases new single "AMAN" - a new collaboration with Greek-American singer Evangelia.
"AMAN" is the latest track to be lifted from Amanda Tenfjord's debut album 'In Hindsight' out 21st October via Propeller Recordings (Sløtface, Highasakite).

The core of "AMAN" was initially conceived during Amanda's time writing with Thea Wang and Bjørn Helge Gammelsæter at Ocean Sound, a studio situated on the remote Norwegian island Giske - recently used by artists such as Sampha and Sigrid. A shimmering piece of alternative pop, Amanda pays tribute to her Greek roots, deftly fusing Hellenic instrumentation and a Mediterranean-leaning beat with her own recognisable approach to song construction - with the help of fellow rising pop act Evangelia.

With a top 5 Greek radio hit to her name already, the 27 year old singer who grew up between Crete and New Jersey adds a stunning verse in Greek to the song. Speaking more on how the song and the collaboration with Evangelia came together, Amanda said: "At the end of the day of writing we had a demo and a vibe we really liked. But some weeks passed and we all felt something was missing. At that time I was spending a lot of time in Athens and I was playing with the thought of having a Greek verse to make the song more special. I had followed Evangelia on Instagram for a while and spontaneously sent her a DM asking if she wanted to collab on a song that I was planning for my album. She heard the demo and immediately loved it. I told her to be as free and creative as she wanted with the demo. After some back-and-forth, we had a zoom-call late at night; me, Bjørn, Evangelia and producer Jay Stolar (Demi Lovato, John Legend) (this was just a week before my final medicine-exam). We made a new chorus and wrote new lyrics to parts of the song. The communication and flow was amazing and Evangelia is a very inspiring person/artist."
Amanda went on to say: "AMAN is about trying to convince the one you really like to go for it," Amanda explains. "'AMAN den boro' - come on, I can't take it anymore. Say you want my love. We also have some bouzouki in there, which honestly is one of the coolest instruments I know."

The release of "AMAN" this week follows Amanda Tenfjord's recently released singles (all set to feature on debut album 'In Hindsight') - "All In", "Plans", and her 2022 Eurovision Song Contest entry for Greece "Die Together", where she placed 8th overall - Greece's best result for 10 years in the competition. There wasn’t a eureka moment in Amanda Tenfjord’s life when she realised she was musical. She just always has been. The 25-year-old Greek/Norwegian singer began playing piano aged five, and from then it was almost destined in some capacity that she would live her life in music. Tenfjord's confidence gives way to sing-a-long pop hooks, while her modesty grounds each song with a deep and resonant humanity.

Her’s is pop music that makes you feel alive. To date, Amanda Tenfjord has released two EP's, 'Miss The Way You Missed Me' and debut EP 'First Impression', widely praised by publications including The FADER, i-D, NME, amongst others.

Forwarding to 2022, Tenfjord juggles life as a recently fully-qualified doctor and rising global pop star, having her music spread worldwide since her debut EP release back in 2018. Her songs have travelled globally with support from Spotify and Apple as well as features on Netflix series Spinning Out and NRK/BBC3 series Nudes. Tenfjord's mesmerising vocals and powerful stage presence has also taken her to various European festivals such as Reeperbahn, Iceland Airwaves, The Great Escape, by:Larm and Eurosonic, as well as several tours across Norway.

October will see the release of debut album 'In Hindsight', supported by a run of European tour dates early 2023, with stops in Spain, Norway, Netherlands and Germany along the way, as well as a date at Omeara in London on 8th February 2023.
