Crashing over you like a tsunami, the song catches the chaos and anxiety of our times in a painfully beautiful and powerful way. Based on Frédéric Chopin’s legendary “Revolutionary Etude” theme, which the artist has played herself, the song ponders on themes such as white privilege and worry about the state of the world.
Musically, “Amor Mundi” sits in the middle of a triangle between Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift. Offering both a strong beat and sharp lyrics, the chaotic rumbling of the classical piano theme finds its counterpart in Anni Pohto’s intense vocals, only to smoothen out to a catchy and heartfelt chorus. Distinctive for the rising Nordic pop star, the song is filled with both sonic and lyrical easter eggs (surprises), including a sample of Finland’s president Sauli Niinistö’s speech after Russia attacked Ukraine in February 2022. The song release includes both a radio edit and a full-length version with a beautiful bridge section working as a stunning outro.
