Ámaris – “Jelly”


“Jelly” shows the confident, unique electro-pop sound of Ámaris. The London-based artist — whose author name as a science fiction writer is Amaris Wenceslas — has released five albums since 2014, with her latest being the recent 26. “Jelly” is the opener on that album, showing the Dutch-Swiss-New Guinean artist as one capable of understated hooks and nocturnal dance moods.

“The inspiration for this album was “disillusioned”,” Ámaris explains. “It is about reflection and feeling disenchanted, and obviously, Ámaris recorded it with 26 years. The music was recorded to be minimalistic and support the “disillusioned” vibe.”

Also released alongside the album is the “Supernova” short film, below, directed by Andy Quan:

Amaris is also an ambassador for the non-profit organization Big Blue Ocean Clean-up, which helps reduce plastic waste in the oceans. Between her pop music, work as an author, and efforts for non-profits, Ámaris is certainly succeeding in many facets.

“Jelly” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
