Storming the globe with their debut album, The Amazons have found themselves immersed in a new symbol of rock and roll.
Admittedly, a new face to the genre, The Amazons are paving their own stretch of rock anthems. With their highly anticipated album peaking at No. 8 in the UK charts, it’s not a gamble to put all bets on the Reading band. Soaring vocals stride above thumping drums and guitar licks as another relentless track makes its appearance.
Playing the King Tuts Stage on Sunday, we chat Lorde, social media and guilty pleasures with The Amazons.
For someone just discovering you guys, how would you sum up your sound for them?
It’s Rock and Roll. We enjoy music with an energy and emotional urgency so we hope that bleeds into our sound.
Best and worst nickname you’ve ever had?
We had a heckler at a festival a while back and I won’t repeat what we heard him call us. Can’t say we’ve had any stand out nicknames yet so we’re open to suggestions!
What was the first record you ever bought?
- Write and record 2nd record
- Walk from Lands End to John O Groats
- Beat my addiction to social media. We’re all addicted, don’t pretend you’re not.
Your ultimate guilty pleasure?
