Indie rock daydreamers, Songs of Llore, creates a lush sonic dreamscape for listeners to explore. Ethereal, yet intimate vocals weave through distorted guitars and vibey synth pads to transport listeners to other worlds. Songs of Llore employs a combination of real and synthetic instruments and sounds, transcending the limits of the physical world while staying grounded on earth. Similar artists are: Mitski, Wet Leg, Clairo.
Songs of Llore is the project of Amanda Collins who spins elements of magic and storytelling in her music. Her songs speak of healing, nature, and connecting with our truest self. She is inspired by daydreams and using music as a portal to enter other worlds. Influences include a big pile of fantasy novels, folk ballads, FKA twigs, Fairport Convention, Joan Baez, Mitski, and Jenny Lewis.
Originally from the forests and rivers of Pennsylvania, Collins uses her experiences of living in various cities and climates, and the cycles of heartache and joy these places bring to influence her art. Songs of Llore is based in the green and lovely city of Nashville, TN performing in various iterations of the band(full band, solo, and somewhere in between). Their newest single, “Late Bloomer,” will be out on all streaming platforms this October along with a music video and an EP set to be released in January of 2024.
