Since rocketing into the public eye after winning Swedish Idol at the age of just 16, making her the youngest winner in the contest’s history, Stockholm-based singer and songwriter Amanda Fondell has since gone onto release a number one album with ‘All This Way’ in 2011, and more recently her breakaway EP ‘In A Talk With Nature’ in 2017, which saw her find a new sound for herself. One that wasn’t so focused on mainstream adulation but one she could call her own.
And now with her newfound sound fully embraced by both her and her fans, she now returns with her latest pop anthem ‘Reckless’.
Produced by Anton Göransson and co-written with Isabella Sjöstrand, her latest offering manages to meld the smooth and sultry RnB vibes of artists like Nao, SZA and Jorja Smith, but inject a heavy dose of powerful and euphoric production that lifts this new single out of its dulcet atmosphere and into something far more captivating and head turning.
Speaking about her latest single, she said, “’Reckless’ is about a person who is selfish and who lacks any empathy. A conversation where you are being honest and vulnerable, and their only response is “yeah I know exactly what you mean”, when clearly they don’t and they couldn’t careless. All they want to do is talk about themselves.”
