Out now via Fiction Records / Caroline Australia, The Amazons’ sublime second album ‘Future Dust’ is as explosive as expected from the Reading rockers and is packed with surprises no one saw coming.
From as soon as it bursts out of the blocks, ‘Future Dust’ barely pauses for breath. It is 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.
The Amazons were the most hotly tipped UK band of 2017 and followed through with their debut album reaching #8 in the official UK chart. From BBC Radio 1 and 6 music A lists, to performing at London’s Brixton Academy this year, The Amazons are now a rock band poised for greatness.
