New Sounds: Amanda Zelina

I have no idea who Amanda Zelina is (Canadian, early 20s, redhead – that’s about it), but after hearing her yet-to-be-released single “Obsessed,” it’s hard not to imagine big things ahead for her. Granted, it maybe shares too much in common with “Obsessions,” the equally moving, keyboard-driven current single by Marina and the Diamonds (as can be heard on JeffMix2009.02.28). But let’s chalk that up to bad timing. Zelina’s soulful, retro sound seems poised to catch the Adele / Duffy wave currently hitting the charts. And that’s good timing.
