Songs like earworms; they get stuck in your head as soon as you hear them and keep you wanting more. DUNE Aimee’s real and bubbly personality in combination with her cheeky lyrics are infectious. Her fresh sound draws from artists such as Halsey, FLETCHER and Tove Lo. The Dutch pop artist uses electronic elements; synths, percussion and vocal chops to set current surroundings for her straight forward, honest and confrontational lyrics. In her songs she says everything you would want to say to a person, but do not really dare to say in their face.
Growing up around strong female artists in the pop scene inspired her to be an empowering and relatable artist by being exactly who she is. ‘As a kid I would always go to the same little corner in my room, sit on the ground and listen to my favourite artists sing about their struggles or how they overcome them. Knowing even people that I look up to have the same struggles, makes me feel like I am not alone. It helps me grow into the person that I want to be, and inspires me to be the artist I am today.’
Since moving to the UK, Leeds, three years ago she started collaborating with songwriters, producers and other artists around the area to work on new music. After gigging and being played on different local radio stations in the Netherlands, she is now broadening her presence and audience both nationally and internationally.
DUNE Aimee about her debut single Power Cut: ‘It's a very personal song to me. I wrote it during a period in my life where I was doubting a lot of things and didn't know how to get out of the situation I was in. I felt very stuck and powerless. This song was almost like a cry for help from someone or something from the outside to just force me to get myself the time to really become ME again.'
