'Made A Fire' by Amaroun
A glistening of soul-tinged guitar pop, cherubic vocals and heartfelt keys, Amaroun beautifully depicts the versatile exploration of becoming sexually aware and wide eyed to the realisation of the complexity of it all. ‘Made a Fire’ was created in a heightened state, in the aftermath of coming out, “I’ve found clarity in the thrill of meeting someone new. When you find that person and there’s this instant connection you can’t deny, it’s something that’s hard to describe. This song is simply gratitude in musical form for that person and that feeling.” ‘Made a Fire’ illustrates a woman glowing in her self-appreciation of figuring it all out and discovering what she really wants. Blossoming and becoming sexually cognizant, Amaroun sparkles in ‘Made a Fire’ and conjures a natural progression from her previous single ‘Bed Bugs’, where she found herself deep in distraction and escapism.
Amaroun is the latest project of multi-talented producer and songwriter Jay Brown. Emerging from the same tight-knit community as LA Salami, Francobollo and The Big Moon, Amaroun is currently collaborating, and planning to release material with, Charles Watson (Slow Club), LA Salami, Adam French, Fyfe Dangerfield (Guillemots) and Francobollo on a forthcoming recording project, Amaroun headlines Archspace in London on March 6th and is confirmed for this year’s Liverpool Sound City festival.
Amaroun will release her second single ‘Made A Fire’ on February 2nd via LGM Records. Following support for debut single ‘Bed Bugs’ from Clash, Huw Stephens (BBC R1), Chris Hawkins (BBC 6 Music) and Maz Tappuni (Radio X), Amaroun joined the highly acclaimed Communion Presents stable of artists in December.
