"This album was made in 2020 which had a lot more time for introspection than usual! I thought a lot about my lack of confidence and shyness as a teenager. While I still have moments of insecurity, I think how far I’ve come and I’d like to about to go back and tell my younger self not to worry, that I would ‘bloom eventually’. Teenage ‘me’ is the Wallflower in the title and this album tells stories about events and people from my past.
‘As well as artists like Goldfrapp and Kate Bush, I’m influenced by the mood of film noir, like David Lynch productions and even Broadway theatre. I love a bit of melodrama in my pop. That’s why I adore David Bowie too, with his mix of rock and cabaret’.
‘One way my music has been described is ‘James Bond music, for the wee hours of the morning’
"Debbie Harry performing in a smoky jazz club somewhere in space...definitely recommended for fans of Lana Del Rey." BigTakeover.com
"Easton’s voice is operatic and breathtaking...the album is part Phantom of the Opera, part Tangerine Dream and part mid-era The Cure, the album is intense, emotive and complicated both sonically and in lyrical content." YourEDm.com
"Amanda Easton always swims in her lane, and that lane is like a boulevard in a theatre district surrounded by electro clubs. The fusion of modern electronica with her signature theatrical style vocals is unmistakable, as is the influence of Goldfrapp’s album ‘Felt Mountain’...
This album sees Amanda full realizing the perfect balance of filling the air with her vocal inflections supported by minimalist electronic instruments that compliment and transport you to an eerie and moody space" MusicInstinct.com
