Amanda Marie Wilkinson Releases 'Spiritual Level'
Amanda Marie Wilkinson grips with her latest release 'Spiritual Level'.
Fusing contemporary pop with a dance foundation, Amanda pushes through the rest of the industry noise with a compelling character. Furthermore, she sounds super sharp with a mind-blowing vocal and her lyrical prowess blossoms with each word resonating well.
'Spiritual Level' kicks off with a gradually rising synth arrangement. It reminds me of a 90s dance track with the bass riff also popping with bite. Amanda then reaches for the mic, and she sings through a harrowing robotic effect which we do not hear all too often in the modern chart. For me, I would have gone for a little less of a vocal impact because it sounds possibly too sharp at times, but if that is the intention, then it certainly works.
As the track progresses, the music becomes more profound. Moreover, the rhythm catapults forward with an anthemic quality which will get the hairs standing on the back of your neck. Also, we hear a myriad of new sounds popping out in the mix with a ghostly harmonic echoing out regularly, adding even more weight to Amanda's already powerful sound.
Overall, 'Spiritual Level' is a breath of fresh air. Yes, it comes with a conventional structure, but it paves the way for future pop. Also, given that this is the first single from Amanda, she is proving that she is here to stay and it would not surprise me to see the vocalist topping festival bills in the years to come.
