Brimheim is the moniker of danish-faroe artist Helena Heinesen Rebensdorff. Her music and performances is very artful and vesatile. On January, 28th 2022 her debut album ‘ can’t hate myself into a different shape ‘ will be released and ‘hey Amanda’ will be part of it. It is a song about childhood friendship and nostalgia.
“Obviously there are plenty of great romantic love songs, but for some reason there aren’t a lot of love songs about friendships, even though they’re often just as crucial and formative as any crush or relationship. ‘hey amanda’ is my take on a platonic love song”. says Brimheim.
And who is Amanda?
“Amanda and I became best friends when we were 10 and it is one of my closest relationships to this day. The impact our friendship has had on my life is hard to overstate – especially because we grew our shared interest in art and music together at a very formative time in our lives. I feel like that’s pretty special – to have grown into the adult versions of ourselves and still be friends. I’m an only child, so Amanda is the closest thing I have to a sibling. She lives in Montreal now, so unfortunately we don’t get to see each other that often. I wanted to write a song that works as a celebration of our friendship and revels in the nostalgia of our childhood beginnings.”
