NY-based electro-pop soloist Amanda Steckler (under the moniker of Blonde Maze) may have reminded us of an icy winter last year with hit single ‘Antarctica‘ – but this time she rolls the summer back once again with marimba-made synths to die for in ‘Thunder’.
Taking a year out to write and record, the American artist brings us a experimentary, minimalist production. Speaking to Clash about ‘Thunder’ here – it’s “about growing and changing with someone. You start to miss older times with them, but you also acknowledge that the growth has made them an inseparable part of your heart. Sometimes, with a relationship’s maturity, you lose your patience more, you let your guard down, and you get hurt, but the beauty of this maturity is that there becomes no one else in the world you are as comfortable growing with.”
A new EP is set for release in 2018, so that’s certainly something to eagerly count down the days to!
You can see Blonde Maze at Notting Hill Arts Club in London on 27th October.
