If North London songwriter AMiR isn’t an artist on your radar to do big things in 2018… We suggest you take note today.
Since a young age, AMiR has been nothing short of a music obsessive. He spent his early years learning guitar, piano and drums, honing the skills that would eventually lead to him becoming the complete musician he is today. Last years ‘Drench Me With Your Lust’ was a distinctive introduction to AMiR’s sound, with funky guitar layers and a powerful, Prince-Esque approach to contemporary pop music. Finishing the year on a high, ‘All Or Nothing’ was a hit in the club charts, as well as being featured as a BBC Introducing Track of the week.
Now working towards his next single release in February, AMiR has treated fans to an unrecognisable, but unmistakably brilliant cover of Niall Horan’s 2017 hit Slow Hands. AMiR puts in an incredible performance on all parts of the track, making the composition his own with typically funkadelic guitar licks and a distinctive bass-line, providing a silky groove foundation for AMiR’s powerful topline.
“I thought the melody and lyrics of Slow Hands were really strong and I wanted to see if I could make a song that is not my style into my style, and I feel I’ve done that. I also enjoyed making the video and I hope you all do too.” – AMiR
