Co-written by Amahla and produced by Phil Simmonds XX the powerful track explores the difference between performative activism and authentic solidarity, whilst Amahla’s sultry vocals wander over the intricate R&B influenced production. Speaking on the track Amahla explains “I wrote ‘Do Something You Can’t Take Back’ in response to ‘Blackout Tuesday’ in June 2020. On that day over 28 million people posted Black squares to instagram, but solidarity is practical not symbolic. With the video I wanted to remind people why it’s so important to protest and use our voice. We also used footage from fans who took a physical stand against racism last year, it was a special moment bringing this to life. Like I sing in the chorus “do something that you can’t take back, from me”
Do Something You Can’t Take Back follows on from Commandments and marks Amahla’s second single since her Ivor Novello nomination and mentorship under legendary producer and guitarist Nile Rodgers. Singer-songwriter Amahla entered 2020 with a string of sold out headline London shows and critical acclaim for her sociopolitical songwriting and exceptional voice. The year saw Amahla’s momentum accelerate with an Ivor Novello Rising Star nomination, mentorship from Apple, support slots with Omar and Beverly Knight and being personally selected by Fearne Cotton to write a record a song for her ‘Happy Place’ compilation album, one of two independent artists alongside Emeli Sandé, Sam Fender and Ludovico Einaudi. An evolution of her previous releases, her latest releases merge old school Soul with contemporary R&B and set a high bar for her releases to follow.
