Track Of The Day: Amaroun – ‘Scarlet’

Following the poignant power of ‘Rise’ and following acclaim from the likes of BBC 6Music and BBC Introducing, GIHE fave Jay Brown – aka Amaroun – has now shared the latest in a string of singles that she’s releasing each month of 2020.

With each single so far touching on a different theme surrounding life as a queer woman, ‘Scarlet’ is a love song, reflecting on Jay’s “obsession” with  red-heads and the story of how her and her partner met. Oozing a gentle romanticism and subtle playful wit, it’s propelled by immense pounding beats and uptempo glitchy hooks as Amaroun switches between soulful refrains and fast-paced spoken-word lyricism. With a sunny, danceable groove and glistening energy, ‘Scarlet’ reflects Amaroun’s ability to tackle any genre and make it truly her own. An instantly uplifting slice of alt-pop, its luscious scintillating vibes will have you hooked on first listen.

Listen to ‘Scarlet’ now and keep your ears peeled for further releases from Amaroun throughout the rest of the year!
