Here’s a Valentine’s Day treat for you from the South Portland, Maine, the indie pop band Amy & The Engine, fronted by irresistibly charming Amy Allen. With two EP’s and an appearance on The Voice on her resume, Allen the her bandmates in the Engine at Berklee College of Music.
Allen has a perky, lovable vocal style. Her new song “Last Forever,” out today is a feisty, catchy pop tune, fueled by twangy guitars and big beats. It’s not a country song, but I could hear it being belted out on country radio. About the song Allen said:
“‘Last Forever’ was inspired by two different events,” Amy tells us. “I was experiencing deep-seated feelings for a boyfriend at the time, and dealing with the natural fear of expressing my feelings to him and those feelings prompted me to write the song. The second event occurred while playing a gig. Mid-set, this elderly man scooted to the front of the stage. The next thing I knew, this little, adorable old man was getting down. Like, really getting down…to the ground. Now for me, the song symbolizes the beauty in growing old and keeping a youthful spirit through the ups and downs of life.”
Below, download “Last Forever,” and check out the must watch video set in a high school auditorium setting for the song.
