Redbrick Meets: The Amazons
Kylie McCormick chats to rising rock and rollers The Amazons
“The Amazons are rock gods on the rise
'The songs are very much an expression of me,' said vocalist and lyric writer Matt. 'Each song is very expression like. I start with the melody and then write down whatever goobly gook is in my mind. My theory is that the goobly gook is my subconscious, so I pick out words from that and use that to write songs trying to explain situations that haven’t gone the way I wanted them to.' The songs that have come about from this process are striking rock and indie rock tunes that have such great power behind them. 'Instrumentally stripped back to capture the live show sound,' the album is a mixture of pure rock tunes and indie hints, a compilation that really marks The Amazons as a band to listen to. The music is loud, both in its mixing and in the live show, but also has purpose behind the power.

The Amazons are at the precipice of being a household rock band. Their live show is a monster show of loud music and high energy. Their new album released at the end of May promises to be an album filled with hit after hit. Their genuine love of the fans and connection with the audience is unparalleled, giving them a boost as they continue to grow and shape their fandom. It is no doubt an exciting moment for The Amazons, with so many things happening over the next few months all we can do is wait anxiously for their album and next tour!
