Local singer-songwriter Amanda Ong’s new single ‘Square’ tackles human imperfection
The song is now available on all major streaming platforms.
While Amanda doesn’t quite remember what she wrote the song about, she is certain that the chorus touches on the topic of human imperfection, telling the listeners that it is normal to have flaws and make mistakes in life.
Although the title of the song is Square, the cover art is made up of different-sized, brightly-coloured triangles. It is based on the first line of the chorus: “the triangles that form a square are just fragments of a thing trying to keep itself together”.
The song also encourages the listeners to accept that everyone has flaws, with the lyrics: “if we could just see it for what it is, life could be so much bеtter”.
The music video premiere for Square will be released on Sep 22 on Amanda’s YouTube channel.
She will also release her second EP on Oct 22, entitled About Me.
Amanda has garnered listeners in 86 countries. Her songs have been featured on various playlists curated by Spotify and Apple Music, played on radio stations such as 987FM and have been featured in The Straits Times.
Her songs also received nominations at the Youth Music Awards 2020 under three categories.
In addition to writing and performing her own songs, Amanda also produces a cappella covers with her a cappella group New Recording 47.
