Building on her debut single ‘Canyon’ delivers a more fiery and energetic element, boasting a more guitar driven experience with experimental elements, yet her powerful vocals are still the driving force behind the music.
Throughout ‘Canyon’ Aminta’s deep and heartfelt songwriting shines bright, putting her ahead many of her peers. Exploring many themes that are wholly relatable, mostly the feeling of betrayal and the pain that comes with it. Sweeping through vengeance and frustration it’s a cathartic listen and essential for the heartbroken in the world. It’s masterful writing that creates a song that is gut-wrenchingly beautiful.
