Amaya – Demons In The Dark (Spotify)

“Taken from Amaya's EP "No Way Back" this song is a representative example of her advanced singing capabilities. Cinematic sound touch full of mystery, with a supernatural approach that is worth exploring.”

This is the third single from Amaya from her EP "No Way Back".

'Demons In The Dark' continues the thematic direction of AMAYA’s debut EP - underscored by dark undercurrents and a sense of urgency, without any clear resolution. Blending classical influences with modern pop but with a darker tone, this new single expresses a sense of hopelessness and trying to find one's way in the darkness.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Amaya began playing piano and violin at an early age. Throughout her early career, she advanced her musicology studies by exploring haunting classical compositions. Now based in London, this still inspires her dramatic, cinematic style of songwriting.

Blending orchestral elements with dark pop and electronic influences, Amaya continues to evolve her distinctive and unmistakable sound today.
