“Die Together” is an atmospheric ballad. Starting off softly with Amanda’s vocals over minimal production, the song then builds into the second chorus as the emotion hits home.
Amanda sings about a dying relationship. However, she wonders about the possibility of parting this life at the same time as her loved one. This would mean they get to be with each other until the very end, as she sings in the chorus:
“But if we die together now / We will always have each other / I won’t lose you for another / And if we die / together now / I will hold you until forever”

The music video for “Die Together” features Amanda in a town on the island of Symi.
The singer is joined by her lover. Although they arrive in the town on the same boat, the pair seem to say their goodbyes on top of a hill before Amanda’s partner heads back to the boat on his own.
Who is Amanda Tenfjord?
Amanda — real name Amanda Georgiadis — is half Norwegian and half Greek. She mixes modern pop, folk, electronic and ambient in magical ways, delivering something distinctly polished with Nordic flair. You can hear that clearly on her debut EP First Impression, which showcases her raw talent in a beautiful way.
Until recently she was more focused on her studies to become a doctor than music.
Her web site explains a bit more: “While studying medicine, she continued to write music and enter music contests, and it was for fun that she decided to sign up for a showcase festival in Trondheim, where she caught the eye of a record label and, just like that, she was signed.”
The 24-year-old, was internally selected by broadcaster ERT after choosing between five finalists.
