SONG PICK: Amber Jay – Stay The Same
The Liverpool-based singer and songwriter Amber Jay has her own mind when she crafts her music. Her new track is called “Stay The Same,” but musically, it goes to many different and unexpected places. It is Amber’s voice that holds everything together in a compelling way.
Amber gives some background about the song.
“‘Stay The Same’ is a classic heartbreak track. It encapsulates that pining feeling for someone when a relationship has ended and whatever you try to do to fix it just makes the other person more and more distant. Kind of like when you’re swimming and there’s like a lilo in the water and every time you try and wade towards it to get on, the water’s ripples from your movement pushes it further and further away. This track was super fun to make and the first track we recorded. I was so happy with how it sounded that it made me want to make an EP. So, without this track there would be no EP!”
The EP in question is called “Never Too Far From a Dark Thought” and scheduled for release on March 3. Listen to “Stay The Same” below:
