Part of the emerging Irish indie-folk scene, the Dubliner's music is inspired by the likes of Laura Marling and Fleetwood Mac.
After sharing the stage with Emma Langford at Whelan's gig 'All In This Together' and opening for Fields in 2019, Amy Ellen sold out a headline show to release her debut single, 'My Heart’.
Receiving airplay from Radio Nova, Dublin City FM, Dublin South FM and 8Radio; the singer-songwriter's pop rock instrumentation and punchy lyrics have garnered her deserved attention from all angles.
Our Track of the Day, Amy's new single 'This Life', is a catchy coming of age pop-rock tune which hones in on the realisation that nothing good lasts forever.
"The song is inspired by true-life events, it touches on losing and gaining people in your life," Amy says about the track's genesis.
"I feel that it's a subject that everyone can relate to and sometimes we fail to see the impact others have on us until they are no longer present. It's really about closure, acceptance and valuing the relationships you have".
Instrumentally, the song features punchy '90s rock elements, a contrast from Amy’s more recent, acoustic driven songs.
Her soft vocals and harmonies echo her folk roots, while guitar riffs and heavier drums bring in the pop-rock elements.
This marks her fourth single leading up to an eagerly-awaited EP release expected later this year.
We love the direction Ellen has taken to kickstart 2021 - check out 'This Life' below:
