About The Amazons
So swift was The Amazons’ ascent that they scarcely had time to decide on a sound before breaking through. Formed in 2014, by the following year they were signed and receiving rave reviews for their ferocious live shows. Their debut was recorded in West London months before they were tipped everywhere from Apple Music, Amazon, Kerrang and Q, shortlisted on the BBC’s Sound Of poll and playlisted by Radio X and Radio 1. On its release in May 2017, The Amazons sailed to No.8 in the UK album chart.
The Amazons’ sublime second album is as explosive as expected from the Reading rockers whose eponymous debut stormed the Top 10 less than two years ago, but it is also packed with sinister surprises no one saw coming. Ten monster songs make up Future Dust, an album that retools rock’s dark past for the present day while having an absolute blast. Loose blues grooves, religious references and falsetto backing vocals abound on songs that explore issues including social media witch hunts, eating disorders and depression, but never lose sight of a singalong.
