Originating from Toronto, indie synth pop artist Amanda Frances and her blending of soothing melodies, dreamy vocals, and sometimes-a-little-too-honest lyrics has seen her build an impressive following during lockdown. Here, the rising singer-songwriter tells Headliner about her musical journey so far, and reveals what we can expect from her upcoming EP…
The last two years have proved to be a particularly interesting time creatively for the likes of Frances, who has used her new found extra time to focus on writing and recording new projects. In April 2021, she released a track called Cute, the first single from an as yet untitled EP due for a release later this year.
“Oh gosh, Cute is just so raw,” says Frances with a slight air of irony. “And it's honest; it's probably the most honest thing I've ever done in my entire life. That's something that's become very important to me as a songwriter.”
The track chronicles a messy relationship that Frances was involved with, which culminated in an equally as messy trip to Mexico.
