AMARA - Kaolin

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter AMARA, formerly known as Viola Ellis, has today released her wildly impressive 3-song debut EP titled Kaolin, which also serves as the first installment in a series of three EP's that she plans to share throughout the remainder of 2016 before releasing her debut album, Porcelain later this year.

Although all three songs that make up her Kaolin EP are all truly exceptional in their own right, the one that stood out the most to us has easily got to be "Last Night", a jazzy and sultry ballad that effortlessly showcases the young chanteuse's elegantly executed vocals.

Speaking on the track, AMARA says:

"'Last Night' is very much based on a real experience. I met this guy at a swing club and we were drawn to each other like magnets. He was the local swing expert and everyone at the club knew him and I was this naive, curious girl. I wanted the song to feel seductive and mysterious just like our encounter was, with a lot of talk happening without many words being spoken. Charles Black came through with his usual magic... those hip hop drums at the end fucking blew my mind the first time I heard them."

Stream AMARA's Kaolin EP in full below and stay tuned for the visuals for "Porcelain", as well as the release of her second EP, Fluxes, coming soon.

AMARA's Kaolin EP is available now on iTunes.

Premiere via Bullett Media.
