Get surprised by Amy Lee’s singing style in ‘Imperfection’, one of the two brand new songs on Synthesis

September 15, 2017

We’ve already had a bite of Evanescence’s new album, Synthesis, like the band’s most successful track ‘Bring Me To Life’ re-recorded in full orchestration, but we only now get a chance to hear what Amy Lee meant by “a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds” in the new band’s new song, ‘Imperfection’. Check it out below and get surprised!

In contrast with the title, ‘Imperfection’, all the elements of the song are perfect and add to the powerful effect. We hear Amy Lee go off the beaten track in the manner of singing: her vocals are intense, quick-paced and full of suspense. But as the song progresses, the singer gets to showcase her signature high-pitch rock vocals.

The most amazing thing is that somehow the absence of rock sound does not feel unnatural on the track and only causes our curiosity what else the band can do with the freedom to use electronic tools and approaches. Which we’ll hear pretty soon, because ‘Imperfection’ is one of the two brand new songs on the band’s upcoming album. In Lee’s own words, the album title, Synthesis, doesn’t only stay for the synthetic direction of the new tracks:

“It is the synthesis, the combination, the contrast, the synergy between the organic and the synthetic, also the past and present,” Lee explains.

Will Evanescence pull out these new beat-driven songs live, you might wonder. Well, you have an opportunity to check it out for yourself, as the band have recently announce their headlining tour in support of new album. It’s the first time Evanescence are touring with an orchestra and they couldn’t be more thrilled:

“I’m so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we’ve built over the years,” says the frontwoman. “I’m also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack.” (via AltPress)
