Born and raised in the deep south of Sweden, just outside Malmö, Amanda Liedberg moved to London in 2014 to attend the BIMM Academy. Here she met Italian producer, Gabriele Mazza and the electronic pop duo STORME was born.
The drama, beauty and brutality of the wild is one of her favourite themes and inspiration. “I always start at the piano, with the basics,” says Amanda of her minimalist approach to crafting tracks, influenced by great pop hook writers like Sia, Max Martin and Kate Bush. “Lots of things are based on my life experience. Always when I write, I feel like it needs to tell a story that comes from my heart.”
Championed by CLASH, The Line Of Best Fit, Complex, Atwood and Earmilk, BBC Introducing (UK), P3 (Sweden) and picking up Spotify's influential New Music Friday playlists both in the UK and across The Nordics… their musical chemistry caught the attention of the television world too, with their release of ‘Starlight’, a glacier-sized slice of synths, drums and soaring vocals, placed prominently in the closing sequence of US drama, ‘The Bold Type’.
Aside from fronting STORME, Amanda’s venturing into the world of Film and TV, featuring on the soundtrack for award-winning 2019 UK drama series ‘The Bay’, which has since been commissioned for a second season.
