Amanda Morra's dreamy pop has been heard before

February 9, 2010

So, sometimes an artist so thoroughly strikes me as like an other artist that it’s hard to separate out what differences they have. Amanda Morra sounds like Dido, and it’s hard for me to think of anything other than that. The soft electronic backbeats, the cooing vocals (although Morra’s are a bit lower than Dido’s), the vaguely dreamy sheen over the pop endeavor; it’s all there. If you like Dido, Amanda Morra’s self-titled album is for you. If not, look elsewhere.
