Introducing The Amazons

Since the Reading band exploded onto the music scene early last year the quartet have made quite a following for themselves. After touring with the Kooks in Germany and playing festivals like Dot to Dot and Live at Leeds, the band have rightfully earned a Q Award nomination for Best Breakthrough Act, alongside the likes of Spring King and Nothing But Thieves.

Their latest single In My Mind released last month, is heavier than their previous stuff but no doubt just as good! With the help of Catherine Marks who has produced for the likes of Foals and Wolf Alice, this tune really connects to the raw emotion of being in a difficult relationship that you can't find your way out of; the indie band have manufactured an anthem that seems influenced by their shared love for Led Zeppelin and Nirvana. Following the single's release, director Chris Hugall has created an eerie optical jewel to accompany the frantic tune, which further shows the direction that the band's upcoming album is heading in!

The Amazons are set to announce live tour dates any day now and are definitely a band you do not want to miss out on! The Reading band are creating a storm within the music industry and one to keep an eye out for in the future.
