Hopefully, our first introduction to you of Swedish sensation Amille was earlier this month with her video debut for her newest single “Falling.” For those of you who didn’t catch her premiere, she made a name for herself earlier this year at Way Out West Festival, which was headlined by huge names such as MØ, Lana Del Rey, and London Grammar.
We had an opportunity to speak with her about her new sound, future projects, and Swedish influences.
Congrats on your single! Can you tell us a little bit about the inspiration behind and
process making your new song “Falling”?
Thank you so much! “Falling” is about living in a haze when love tries to tear you apart. I wrote “Falling” almost a year ago and it’s about a relationship that never ends, even when it would be for the best.
The first sketch sounded completely different. After a few hour session with Can “Stress” Canatan of Roc Nation, we had a track with the right vibe and a hypnotic chorus.
If someone asked you to describe your sound, what would you say?
My sound is dreamy, powerful and scaled down with vocals in focus. The voice is such a brilliant
How did you first get into making music?
I’m from a music family. My dad is a guitarist and my mother make children songs, so it has always been natural for me to make music, sing, and try new instruments.
Do you have any big influences on your sound?
I’m constantly on a hunt for new music. I love contrasts and I think a great example of that is James Blake; his fragile voice and dark, powerful beats. I love when a song surprises by changing the tempo or exploring with different sounds.
Who are your dream collaborators?
Oh, I love that question, but it’s a long list. Right now, I’m thinking Jamie XX, Erykah Badu, Hudson Mohawke, Fleet Foxes, Jai Paul.
How do you discover new music?
Mostly by browsing through SoundCloud. My not-so-unique super hack is to stalk what different tracks my favorite artist liked.
Anyone you cant stop listening to right now?
Right now I’m in a hip-hop period, as every fall. Moving Castle always posts inspiring new tracks on SoundCloud and I can’t get enough of Swedish artist Amanda Bergmans voice.
Where are you based in Sweden?
I’m based in Stockholm.
Would you say the Swedish music scene influences your sound?
Definitely. I listen to a lot of Swedish music and it has always inspired me. When I’m in doubt, I get so much strength thinking of Robyn, First Aid Kit, Zara Larsson, Tove Lo, Seinabo Sey, Maipei. Being so brave, doing their thing, and taking over the world.
Whats in store for 2018?
2018 will be a year when I release more music than I have before and I’m so excited for that.
