The Amazons continue to make their mark as they share the new vigorous video for fan favourite track ‘Ultraviolet’, featuring the band’s emotive performance augmented by animations.
The new video captures the band excelling in their natural environment with an explosive performance which reflects the raw energy of their gigs.
The video is the result of the craftsmanship by director Oscar Sansom, whose previous credits include videos for Biffy Clyro, Belle and Sebastian and Twin Atlantic.
The young Reading-based quartet – made of Matt Thomson, Chris Alderton, Elliot Briggs and Joe Emmett – have had an exciting year already. They have become the most hotly-tipped guitar band, according to Music Week, and their self-titled debut album smashed into the charts at number 8 earlier this summer.
As with the rest of the album, ‘Ultraviolet’, was produced by the Grammy-nominated Catherine Marks and recorded at the world-famous Assault and Battery Studios in west London.
The track’s parent album includes the punk ‘n’ roll opener ‘Stay With Me’, which has featured on the FIFA 18 soundtrack, and the foreboding grunge of ‘Little Something’.
Elsewhere, ‘Burn My Eyes’ recalls both Husker Du and Biffy Clyro with its cocktail of visceral aggression and melodic intent whilst ‘Raindrops’ showcases Thomson’s emotive vocal delivery.
The Amazons’ ascent has continued in the live arena too as their first headline tour of this year was sold-out and their festival schedule from Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds Festival and BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend.
The band are heading out on tour next month in support of their Top 10 debut album. The four-piece will be playing Southampton Engine Rooms on 13th October, they have also announced further UK dates for February 2018.
