Emerging British artist Amelia Carey returns with her latest single – the much-needed LGBTQ+ anthem ‘Love Is Love’.
Helmed by buzzing producers AZTX and written by Amelia with AZTX and Push Baby’s Danny Wilkin, ‘Love Is Love’ is a heart wrenching open letter to Amelia’s parents to accept her as an openly gay young woman.
The track depicts a struggle that millions of LGBT+ people around the world will know all too well, yet the track proudly offers comfort and support to the LGBT+ community.
With her parents asking “will you ever be normal?” Amelia’s profoundly heartfelt lyrics advocate for the normalisation of homosexuality: “Are you finding it tough because I’m growing up / And I want to be touched by the woman I love?” she solemnly asks them over deep synths and an infectious pop-trap beat, before declaring “I’m still gonna love her tomorrow / I know it’s a hard pill to swallow”.
Posting on social media ahead of the release of the track, Amelia said: “I hope y’all love this one as I’ve poured my heart and soul into this one and it means so so much to me.
“I hope many of you amazing people will resonate with the lyrics.”
Amelia’s authentically raw first two singles – 2018’s ‘Over You’ and 2019’s ‘Happy Tears’ – made waves with critics, achieving high praise thanks to her unflinching refusal to bow down to heteronormative ideals.
‘Love Is Love’ is the perfect encapsulation of Amelia’s admirable strength of character and proves Amelia has a great future not just in music, but as a vital role model in the LGBT+ community who is unafraid to speak her truths.
