International alt-pop artist, Amiena, has released her powerful new single “Flare.” The bold single sets fire to the past in order to begin anew without hesitation. “Flare” is the second song from Amiena’s forthcoming album Flares & Halos and is available to download and stream on digital music platforms worldwide.
There is a reason why the first two singles are in the album title. While “Halo” was a snarky and ironic alt-pop single, “Flare” is dark, honest, and direct. “The songs serve as bookends for the album while representing two different approaches to confront hypocrisy,” explains Amiena. “Halo” was a party in a mansion with gold-plated palm trees, whereas “Flare” transports us to bi-polar scenery — a house pretending to be a church on fire while Amiena navigates through the debris. The track delivers dark synths alongside bold and raw lyrics intent on closing a chapter in her life no matter the cost. “Flare” is about owning the past and letting go of toxic relationships. No regret. No “what ifs,” just simply shutting the door and lighting a match, so there is space for new life. Blending Amiena’s smooth vocals and dark sound, “Flare” is a bold anthem with unique storytelling brought to life with co-writer Lars Deutsch. The two-time Emmy Award winner also produced and played guitar on the track. Amiena also recruited Jorge Villanueva on drums and H. Chris Roy on bass. The single was mixed by Irko (Mac Miller, Sia, Jay Z), and mastered by Gene Grimaldi at Oasis Mastering.
