[PREMIERE] åMBe: Ache

[PREMIERE] åMBe: Ache

Brooklyn-based artist åMBe uses her forward-looking mind and new single to ease ours. Move over Tylenol, “Ache” is the real extra strength stuff.  Doctors should prescribe these exact gritty synths, lush melodies, and pulsating bass lines to cure all their patients' ailments; perhaps with a side of truth serum. While åMBe's electro-pop hybrid sound will entrance, it's her voice, and relatable lyrics, worth listening extra close to. While often chopped-up and manipulated, her heartfelt songwriting is best left unaffected.  Together with her remarkable vocal range, the two coalesce into one welcoming body to make listeners feel at home with an arm around the shoulder.

I wrote this song and even finished a lot of the production on my laptop in a small hotel room outside of Atlantic city. It was January, the hotel was almost empty, and I had brought my mobile studio in a suitcase with me to seek out some isolation and escape from NYC life, and from life in general. I really needed this isolation. In Brooklyn, I felt like I was stuck. Like I was suffocating and in pain, from a lot of different things, both personal and professional. I felt imprisoned by certain pressures and limitations which wouldn’t let me move forward and breathe. I wanted to scream. I needed to find a way to express what was aching inside of me and to liberate myself from where I was.
