Neil Gardner is a bit of an audio guru, being the brains behind an award winning spoken word production company. But sometimes he likes to retreat from the digital studio to listen to some music analogue style, on vinyl. This time he buys into The Amazons...
Format: 7″ Orange Vinyl
Side A: PALACE – a big ballady slab of poetic piano pop/rock. Featuring fantastically strong emotional vocals and a solid epic sound. This is poignant indie-pop and it pulls you into its world and takes you on a magic-carpet ride of highs and lows.
Side B: ULTRAVIOLET – another indie anthem but this time with a strong Keane-meets-Foo Fighters vibe throughout. An upbeat, martial rhythmic belter, true festival pleaser. Radio indie-rock, yes…but this is no by-the-numbers middle-of-the-road rock song. A call to arms, with anthemic vocals.
Finyl Thought: Preach with beats, my friends.
