Artist Spotlight: The Amazons
Artist Spotlight With Reading-based four piece The Amazons
The Amazons have projected their way to the forefront of the UK Rock scene, with their formidable riffs, anthemic choruses and ferocious live shows.
The Amazons latest anthem-packed album ‘How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me?’ is both a love letter and a rallying cry. Expansive, uplifting, sun-drenched singalongs produced with Jim Abbiss (Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, Adele) find the Reading rockers transpiring from the darkness of 2019’s Future Dust full of lust for life and post-pandemic optimism.
