EUPHORIA today premieres Amahla’s soulful new track, “Have Mercy”.
The Londoner takes her sound to the next level by giving the track a stunning live performance feel. Flexing her vocal talent for all to marvel at, Amahla discusses socio-political issues in a honest manner.
Speaking about the meaning behind the song, Amahla says: “‘Have Mercy’ is a conversation between two people about social progress. Both tackling with the assumption that things get better with time. ‘Have Mercy’ is about the need to interrogate why we’re still fighting for the same rights we did 50 years ago.”
She had a smashing 2018, with two London headline shows and performances at The Great Escape Festivalin Brighton. She’s got another headline slot lined up at The Lexington on 11th November.
Amahla began her musical journey with a mentorship from legendary songwriter Carla Marie Williams (Beyonce, Britney Spears). Just a year later she was awarded the PRS Lynsey De Paul Prize and became only the second MOBO Awards X Help Musicians Grant winner.
Soon after, the young musician released her critically acclaimed EP, Consider This, over the course of a year, to industry praise.
