When brand new artists make their debut, some do so with no more than a meer splash, but alternative newcomer Amelia Moore is currently riding off of the almighty waves of the tsunami that is her debut EP, “teaching a robot to love”. Having warranted herself the history-making title of the first woman to join her management’s roster, joining the likes of Brockhampton, the multi-facet turned to the raw, unforgiving emotions born out of a recent breakup and transformed them into what can best be described as a seven-track-long masterpiece. With angelic and syrupy vocals melting into juxtaposed backing, which is set ablaze by electronic-tinged production, we are treated to an eclectic tour through Moore’s most recent romantic troubles.

When discussing the project’s meaning and what she was going through at the time of its creation, the artist explained, “You know, agony, heartbreak, drama, frustration – I was going through a breakup that should’ve happened way before it did. I was emotionally exhausted and really just needed an outlet to express how I felt. Shoutout to all my best friends – who also just happen to be my collaborators – for listening to me cry over the same guy for two weeks straight!”

Upon the release of her debut EP, the artist-on-the-rise talks turning heartbreaking into sweet-sounding tunes, being managed by Brockhampton’s team and what the next year will hold. Head below to enjoy our interview with Amelia Moore…

Hey Amelia, how are you? How has this past year been?
I’m doing great! My dreams are coming true, baby!

With everything that happened during the pandemic, how has your creativity been affected?
I learned to enjoy writing by myself. I used to avoid it at all costs, but now it’s one of my favourite ways to write.

And talk us through your journey, how did you first get into music, and what sparked your interest?
I played the violin for seven years starting at the age of four before I taught myself piano. I was really involved in theatre and choir programs at my church as well. I thought I wanted to be a Broadway star but I realised I’d rather be myself and sing my own songs on stage than pretend to be somebody else! I really started taking it seriously when I was 15.

And now being managed by the team behind BROCKHAMPTON, how did this venture come about?
I met my manager Brian Washington through another client of his, who also happens to be one of my good friends! We’ve accomplished so much in our first year together; I couldn’t have asked for a better coach on my team.

Now you’ve dropped your debut EP, talk us through your mindset going into it?
HA. You know, agony, heartbreak, drama, frustration – I was going through a breakup that should’ve happened way before it did. I was emotionally exhausted and really just needed an outlet to express how I felt. Shoutout to all my best friends – who also just happen to be my collaborators – for listening to me cry over the same guy for two weeks straight!

And looking back, what was the most challenging aspect?
Showing up at the studio the day after this breakup happened. Looking back through it, thank GOODNESS I was able to keep myself busy and make use of everything I was feeling.

What do you hope people take away from your music?
I hope they learn from my mistakes! If you see any signs of a robot babes, run. GET OUT OF THERE AS QUICK AS YOU CAN!

Who would you say inspires you?
Aside from my musical heroes, (Justin Timberlake, Kanye, Lorde, Frank Ocean), my friend Jbach is such an incredible writer and a really great friend to me. He’s so himself, all the time works so hard and I’m always so inspired when we write together. Love you, Jonathan!

What is next step for you? What are you most excited for?
A couple more singles this summer, hopefully another tour, potentially a mixtape and teaching a robot to love was about an experience I had…but I’m excited to show everybody a bit more about who I am.
