Amanda Markley - Monster

While busy working on her new EP set for release this spring, rising Seattle-based singer/songwriter Amanda Markley has been turning heads by dropping a slew of raw, stripped down covers that highlight the strongest female pop artists, such as Halsey's "Hurricane" or Joy Williams' "What A Good Woman Does," leaving fans excited to hear her original tracks. Today, Amanda Markley has shared the lyric video for her latest single, "Monster", a collaborative effort with friend and fellow local songwriter Matt Bacnis and producer Chase Manhattan of Night Argent.

Speaking on the track, Amanda says:

"This is a song about love, but about so much more than that. 'Monster' is about getting totally caught up in a relationship and swept away. The lyrics in this song are a call to action to hold on tight to that true love and to fight for it with passion. Love can be a dangerous game like a 'Monster,' but you have to be brave and take on the thunder to see the sun."

Markley has been busy in the studio with Matt Bacnis and Adam Mitchell (She Is We), wrapping up a slew of new tracks to be featured on her forthcoming EP. The first single from the EP, "Jealousy" was released in 2015 in a partnership with Cadence & Cause, sending all proceeds of single downloads to the charitable cause of rescuing homeless animals and finding them homes. After releasing the EP's newest single, "Monster," Amanda will be heading out on a short West Coast tour with Chloe Hendrickson which kicks off March 14th before returning to complete the EP.

Watch the lyric video for "Monster" below.

"Monster" is available now on Bandcamp.

Premiere via AXS.
