Fresh from her previous release, Leave Me Alone, singer-songwriter Amanda Ong announces a brand new single, Another Little Postcard. The track is now available on all major streaming platforms.
Another Little Postcard is a collection of letters that Amanda has written to herself over the years. It captures memories from her youth – her first relationship, studying overseas – to adulthood, a career switch, and more. The instrumental and harmonies become fuller as the track progresses, as though engulfing the uncertainty in her life until it is no more. The song ends on a leading tone, leaving listeners feeling like there’s still more to explore.
Amanda has a habit of writing to herself in the future. “Every time I went overseas, I would make sure to buy a postcard and mail it back home to myself so that I can reminisce after my trip. It’s my favourite kind of souvenir.”
In light of Another Little Postcard, she has written and mailed almost 100 postcards to her family and friends in Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Pakistan, Japan, America and even Switzerland – the cover art designed by Chris Chew being displayed on the picture-side of the postcard.
Following this release, Amanda will be releasing a behind-the-scenes music video on 7th July 2021, 9pm, showing the process of mailing her postcards. Her next few songs will touch on her time overseas, exploring travel and long-distance relationships. Her next song, Turbulence, will be released on 10th September 2021.
