The Swiss-Italian electronic artist is the latest to release music as part of the (zero) singles series on untitled (recs).
AMARA ctk100 has regularly flirted with a variety of genres on her past work, such as trap on early single ‘BODY IN A TANK (CCTV)’ and the bizarre combination of nu-metal and R&B on this year’s ‘CHEW’, and her newest offering, ‘used to think it was me but it’s you!’ is a razor-sharp slice of hyperpop.
Speaking about the themes she wanted to explore on the track, the artist stated that “ultimately the song is about growing up as a woman and being socialised to feel responsible for how people react to your body”.
The track showcases her flare as a producer, who collaborated with alone.nowhere and s.g cackle to create the song, which has reserved verses before breaking into a bass-heavy and high energy chorus where the title is used as a repeated mantra, as she tells herself she isn’t the one to blame for others’ perceptions of her.
This is the third single in the (zero) series from untitled (recs), following Max Winter’s ‘Lean Into Me / O Matter’ and VAMPI’s ‘Citadel’ earlier this year, and continues the rich run of form that the experimental London label are in when it comes to nurturing the most cutting-edge acts.
