Amanda Merdzan ~ Matter

Who is AMANDA MERDZAN?  An intriguing singer-songwriter and producer based out of Perth!

My first impression of “Matter” : A somber yet earnest collision of words, sounds and emotions with a gripping quality that is impossible to ignore!

My take :  I love experiencing songs with an all-consuming kind of sound and feel and “Matter” by the multi-talented artist AMANDA MERDZAN is the perfect example.  “Matter” is powerful in a lot of subtle ways and is more than just a little compelling.  It’s a robust yet slow-moving piece with an impressively inherent power to carry my thoughts through heavy moments of internal struggle, self-contemplation and a want to make everything feel right again.  With every listen, I find myself absorbing every word in a deep and more personal way enabling me to relate to “Matter” in so many abstract ways.  Amidst gorgeously constructed soundscapes of ambient sounds and soothing textures, MERDZAN’s airy vocals seem to softly meander between different states of hesitancy and optimism.  Ultimately arriving in the only place that truly matters.  Happiness!

“Matter” is the first track from a new 5-song EP set to be released sometime next year.  And if this track gives me any early indication, the new EP should be a good one!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
