We were on hand to chart Amber-Simone's initial musical forays two years back, and today the singer-songwriter is back with her new single, "Taught Me Better". Drawing from a wide-ranging palette of influences, it's equal parts funk and soul with a flickering of '80s pop here, with Amber-Simone sounding better than ever. Where previously she was almost faceless, there's a new outward confidence and exuberance to match the striking vocal now, and the track's infectious bounce is mirrored by the accompanying video's bright hues from across the spectrum.

Bring the summer in today and peep The Basement-produced, Will Reid-directed visual for "Taught Me Better" exclusively above. The single is out now on iTunes.
