About

Every AMWIN song is an escape into the world inside her head, a beautifully strange fantasia populated by glamorous misfits and glorious monsters, libertines and Bright Young Things, ’80s movie idols and ’90s rock-and-roll stars. On her EP AMWIN in Wonderland, the Stockholm-based artist brings that world to life with her hypnotically glossy yet minimalist pop, delivering a debut that’s equal parts elegant fever dream and sharply detailed confession of her deepest desires.

With its breathless beat and warm R&B groove, “Living Mistake” finds AMWIN’s soulful flow sliding through lyrics embracing her trainwreck tendencies. (“That song came together after I’d locked myself out of my apartment for the twentieth time,” notes AMWIN. “I wanted to write about how even though I might come off like I’m so in control, there’s this other side of me that people don’t usually see.”) And on “Uber,” AMWIN turns her romantic frustrations into a sleepy slow-burner laced with unapologetically blunt lyrics. “‘Ube
