STEPHANIE POETRI’S EP AM:PM OUT NOW
Indonesian-American rising pop artist, Stephanie Poetri released her debut EP, AM:PM, via 88rising, distributed by 12Tone Music. Listen HERE. AM:PM is a collection of light hearted daydreams, afternoon ruinations, and solemn midnight queries that invites listeners into the safe haven of Stephanie’s mind. The flow of the tracklist represents the duality between the hopeful, energized, and light emotions that can arise during the morning contrasted with the reflective and sometimes melancholy tone of the evening. AM:PM includes hit singles “IRL”, “Selfish”, and “How We Used To” as well as new tracks, “Paranoia”, “Daydreaming”, and “3PM”. The mostly self-produced EP also features production from Ojivolta (Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes, Halsey), Doc Daniel (Pink Sweat$, Tate McRae, Kaash Paige), Wes Singerman (Kendrick Lamar, Olivia O’Brian), Heavy Mellow (Halsey, Jhene Aiko, Kid Cudi), and Taylor Dexter (Olivia O'Brian).
Speaking on AM:PM, Stephanie said, “AM:PM follows a sort of journey from the morning to night and that's how I arranged it in the tracklist! The AM side is a little more light hearted, upbeat, and fun. On the other hand, the PM side is a little darker, a little angstier, and a lot more dramatic. I always wanted to make music to be the soundtrack to people's lives and I hope people can find anything they're looking for for whatever part of the day they're in with this EP.”
In addition to AM:PM, Stephanie has also released the official music video to “Paranoia” today. Watch HERE. Produced by frequent collaborators Wes Singerman (Kendrick Lamar, Olivia O'Brian), Taylor Dexter (Olivia O'Brian), and Heavy Mellow (Halsey, Jhene Aiko, Kid Cudi), the music video follows Stephanie as she allows her darkest emotions and deepest fears to come to the surface. The eerily haunting sound of the clock ticking at the forefront of the song echoes the sentiment of living in one’s head.
"This single is about those moments when everything is going so well, almost too well, that you're just waiting for the moment it doesn't,” explained Stephanie about “Paranoia”. “And that just ends up being the issue, you’re just too in your own head.”
Through AM:PM, Stephanie utilizes both her songwriting roots and painstaking anecdotes to cement herself as one of the most endearing artists of our time. Previously released AM:PM singles, “IRL”, “Selfish”, and “How We Used To”, received praises from outlets like Billboard, Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, and Hollywood Life.
Over the past two years, the 20-year old artist has fully immersed herself in every inch of the creative process. Other chart-topping singles that display Stephanie’s writing, composition, and arrangement ability include, “I Love You 3000 II” featuring Chinese global megastar Jackson Wang, which reached #1 on Billboard’s China Chart, held 4 weeks at #1 on the Spotify Global Viral 50 Chart and garnered over 105M Spotify streams.
