Amanda Easton – “Man Who Fell to Earth”

The melodic, moody “Man Who Fell to Earth” is the opener on Amanda Easton’s new mini-album, Polaroids & Postcards. Tonally, the track’s vocals exude a feel reminiscent of Madonna, while the synth-driven sound reminds of if Sparks attempted a James Bond theme. The combination results in a rich, spacey sound that emphasizes the artist’s talents — particularly an engaging vocal presence and knack for hooks within consuming soundscapes. A piano-laden transition at the three-minute mark admirably mixes things up a bit before the vocal-forward conclusion.

“I was packing up my Mum’s house when I discovered a box of old letters and photos of mine and it brought back lots of memories!” the artist explains, regarding the new album. “These songs are all from personal experiences – some joy and love, some heartbreak.”
