Die to the Past: The Superwoman in the Making Disrobes
The superwoman in the making is finally disrobing, relinquishing not only her cape, but everything else. On her new full-length album, “Die to the Past,” Amanda Mabro is naked…and not just in the way you’re thinking.
“Die to the Past,” to be released October 14th, 2011 at Cabaret du Mile End, features Amanda at her most vulnerable: “This is the most personal thing I’ve ever shared publicly,” she says. Beginning with the song “Moments are Bubbles,” this concept album examines the issues of memory, identity and spots of time: Are we simply an amalgamation of our experiences? Do our memories define us? Or, are we able to throw that stuff away, let go of our baggage, and become whoever we want, whenever we want? The questions posed, stories told and universes created by “Die to the Past” function in the same way as memories do: they are separate and yet interwoven, and Amanda is earnestly trying to make sense of it all.
Matching lyrical content with vocal delivery, the approach to the recording of this album paralleled its theme: it is one that celebrates the times we fall short, fall down, fall back and fall away, and with this in mind, absolutely no autotune was used. “Die to the Past” takes a stand against this tool that has become the industry standard in the last 10 years, and, says Amanda, “embodies a different time in music when people’s humanity was valued over sonic perfection.” Recorded over 900+ hours at the historic Studio Victor, this poprock n’ soul-cabaret cocktail presents Amanda’s vocal prowess in the buff. She just might make you blush.
Come help us kick off this new chapter in the story of the band at their Montreal record launch, Friday, October 14th, at Cabaret du Mile End (5240 Parc) at 9pm. Opening the show will be neo-soul guest Nadia Bashalani and cabaret-folk artist Brie Neilson (of The Unsettlers). Tickets are available on ADMISSION
P.S. Check out Amanda nerding out about all things related to singing and songwriting, as well as performing a solo rendition of “Moments are Bubbles” at Studio Victor!
