Operator Please ‘Back and Forth’ (single)

Operator Please are preparing for the international release of their sophomore album ‘Gloves’ through Brille Records with the announcement that the first single, ‘Back And Forth’ will be available on May 24th. As 20 year old Amandah Wilkinson, lead singer, songwriter and producer explains..…‘With “Back & Forth” we wanted that real kind of girly pop feel going on. I think some of its quite kitsch. For a while I was really afraid to do things that were too girly; I was really afraid to show that kind of emotion, so that’s why the first record I masked alot of the lyrics because I didn’t want to appear weak. So on this record, on songs like “Oh My”, “Back & Forth” and “Like Magic”, I really wanted to inject more heart and soul into my songs. It’s really just about reaching down and being a bit more honest and pushing the emotion outward.” Sonically, Gloves sees Operator Please strike out in a different – and somewhat unexpected – musical direction. Thrashing guitars and shouted vocals are out, funky bass-lines are in. Influenced by Eurythmics, Prince and Janet Jackson, the album fuses elements of pop, funk and hip-hop with Amandah’s distinctive vocal and the band’s unique instrumentation. www.operatorpleaseband.com
