Last Friday the up and coming musician, Alex Amor, released the third track ‘Motion’ from her debut EP ‘Love Language’. The full EP produced by herself and Karma Kid is set to come out on the 5th January 2021.

To go alongside the song, Alex has created a short film and poem that encompasses her thoughts on ‘Motion’ and how we all go about our lives. She conveys “Motion is something we can either flow with or against, and I’m learning to accept that the only thing we can rely on is that nothing stays the same.”

Ephemerality – the property of lasting for a very short time, is a silver-lining for Alex as she embraces change though her music. The 23-year-old moved to London from her home town in suburban Glasgow after spending the summer in 2018 solely focusing on writing and recording music. Alex’s life in London has helped her grow as an artist, she wrote the tracks that were to become ‘Love Language’ during her first year in the city.

The title ‘Love Language’ is in reference to ‘The Five Love Languages’ written by Gary Chapman which illustrates the 5 different ways humans show affection in a relationship. However, Alex comments “The title track is about a relationship that fails to align in that way. Opposites can sometimes attract but in this case, they repel. I am obsessed with paradox and juxtaposition – calm and chaos, dark and light, serious and playful.”

You can catch Alex at The Great Escape Festival in May 2021 that takes place in Brighton.
